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 link to our Zoom worship services is available each week in our Saturday email, which you can subscribe to by contacting our deacon, Phil Holzman (see staff page) or using the “Contact Us” form.
In addition to Sunday morning services, we offer special services at various times of the church year, including Christmas Eve (4:00 p.m.), Ash Wednesday, Mid-week Lenten services, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and an Easter Vigil.

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 folks to prepare the communion for worship. 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.
If you are interested in participating in these ministries, please contact Phil Holzman at [email protected]
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, Acolytes, Lectors (readers), Ushers, and Greeters. (Our Assisting Ministers, Acolytes, and Lectors assist with the distribution of communion each Sunday.)
