SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP AT GUSTAVUS ADOLPHUS CHURCH
Everyone is welcome at Sunday morning worship at Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church. Our services are held each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Holy Communion is offered at each worship service. We offer worship services that are creative and dynamic with a variety of styles of music.
We are currently worshipping in person and on Zoom. The Zoom link is available each week in our Saturday email, which you can subscribe to by contacting our deacon, Phil Holzman (see staff page).
In addition to Sunday morning services, we offer special services at various times of the church year, including Advent Vespers, Christmas Eve (4:00 p.m.), Ash Wednesday, Mid-week Lenten services, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday.
DUE TO THE IMPENDING SNOWSTORM, OUR ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE FOR FEBRUARY 22 HAS BEEN CANCELED! Stay safe during this storm!!
On the subsequent Wednesdays in Lent (March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29), we will have Lenten Soup Suppers at 6:00 p.m. at GA Church followed by Lenten Worship at 7:00 p.m. using the much-loved Holden Evening Prayer liturgy and focusing on the them “Life Together.” These evening prayer services will be 30-minutes in length.
During the summer, children’s Sunday School is not in session. You are encouraged to bring your small ones to the worship service where they are welcomed in the name of Jesus. Every Sunday we encourage children to be in worship with us, since Sunday School is scheduled for after the worship service.
If you’re interested in assisting with worship in a non-musical way, we are always looking for more people to serve as assisting ministers, lectors, and sacristans. Assisting ministers participate directly in the worship service by reading prayers and serving communion. Lectors proclaim the Word by reading Scripture during worship and by serving communion. Sacristans work behind the scenes preparing for worship, lighting the altar candles, and often serving communion.
Right now we could especially use one or two additional assisting ministers to join the rotation. If you are interested in participating in either of these ministries, please contact Phil Holzman at firstname.lastname@example.org
Baptism … If you are interested in having your child baptized at GA, you can contact Phil Holzman at the church office. To read more about baptism, and to fill out information for the church office once you’ve scheduled a baptism, you can download this form…Baptism brochure
The Lutheran tradition of worship encourages the participation of many people in each worship service. People serve as Assistant Ministers, Sacristans, Acolytes, Lectors (readers), Ushers, and Greeters. (Our Assisting Ministers, Acolytes, and Lectors assist with the distribution of communion each Sunday.)
