Worship Services

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.
