What is Dinner Church?
Trusting God creates us as vessels for love and grace, all are welcome as we:
- Prepare the meal together.
- Pass the homemade bread, communing our neighbor.
- Eat together, family style.
- Engage with scripture and each other, bringing all of who we are to the table.
- End the meal by passing wine, communing our neighbor.
- Clean up together as an act of service.
- Are sent with dessert and a blessing, trusting in the goodness of God.
About Lutheran Worship
Connected with and central to everything we do, worship unites us in celebration, engages us in thoughtful dialogue and helps us grow in faith. It grounds us in our Christian and Lutheran roots, while demonstrating practical relevance for today’s world.
Central to our worship life is the presence of God through word and sacrament. The word proclaimed and the sacraments —both Holy Baptism and Holy Communion — are called the means of grace. We believe that Jesus Christ is present in these means through the power of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we describe worship as a “gathering around the means of grace.”
There is also a basic pattern for worship among Lutherans. We gather. We encounter God’s word. We share a meal at the Lord’s table. And we are sent into the world.
Worship is fundamentally about what God is doing and our response to God’s action; it is an encounter with God, who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
