Emmanuel offers three services (Traditional, ReFresh, and Breathe) that provide unique worship experiences through which we endeavor to feed each person's individual Spiritual needs.
Traditional - 9am, Sunday
Emmanuel and Calvary have a shared time of traditional Lutheran worship held in our Chapel, which is a more intimate setting than our Sanctuary. This service follows the traditional liturgy found in the Lutheran Book of Worship (LBW).
ReFresh - 10:30am, Sunday
Restoring Energy, Faith, and Relevance to Every Soul’s Heart
Grounded in the Lutheran tradition but embracing a broader view of Jesus’ life and teachings as a path of transformation for our own individual spiritual journeys, our ReFresh service draws upon readings from the Bible and other sacred texts, poetry, dance, and song.
We recognize the many names of God and strive to use inclusive language in our liturgies.
We offer ways for people to creatively participate in the service.
We listen as God speaks to us, guides us, and challenges us through sacred writings, our relationships, and our experiences in the world.
Breathe - 5:00pm, 2nd Saturday, September - May
At Emmanuel's Breathe Meditation Service we gather for one hour to enter a sacred time -- the "thin place" between the worlds -- and Breathe. We listen to sacred scriptures and poetry from many traditions, we chant, and we sit in silence as we open ourselves to the Great Mystery.
