We gather together to worship at 10:00 am every Sunday. We pray, we sing, we laugh, we lament, we open ourselves to be in relationship with God, learning about Jesus' way, wanting to be like he was, bringing God's love into the world.
People of all ages assist in leading the service. That's because people of all ages are in the pews. We like that!
Our worship service is liturgical, using various media at various times to help proclaim the gospel for today. There is always a window open for the Spirit's movement in this place.
We celebrate the Lord's meal on the first and third Sundays, as well as all feast days. Everyone is welcome at the Lord's table.
We are a singing congregation. The songs we sing range between the old and the new, world music to gospel, contemporary to old favourites.
Truly, all are invited! Join us!
Grace is our core word - God's unconditional love for us all. It inspires us, enlivens us, challenges us to live lives that are as loving as God has shown us in the person of Jesus.
We are a member of the BC Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC). As part of the ELCIC, we are members of both Canadian Lutheran World Relief and the Lutheran World Federation. We are a Reconciling in Christ congregation.
