Join us at Spirit of Christ at 10:00 each Sunday morning (11:00am starting on Sunday, February 3rd, 2019)! We worship using Lutheran liturgy and hymns, both traditional and contemporary. Our service offers opportunities week after week to sing God's praises, confess and be forgiven, pray individually and as a congregation, hear the Word of God, learn from the pastor's teachings, affirm our faith, and be blessed into the week ahead. We also celebrate Holy Communion every Sunday and ALL people are welcome at Christ's table. We hope to see you soon!
The Spirit of Christ Choir
Our choir provides the congregation with excellent and inspiring music for the weekly church services. They sing a wide variety of music, including a Christmas Cantata and a Spring Concert. The full choir sings most Sundays - September through May and one Sunday per month in June, July, and August.
New members ages 14 years and up are warmly welcomed; no experience is necessary. Our music is mainly in four parts, Soprano, Alto, Bass, and Tenor. Training is provided to develop the voices of choir members. All who have a love for music are invited to join in our music journey!
Regular Practices are held Wednesdays from September through May. There are men's and women's choir groups that meet 6:30 - 7:00 p.m. as scheduled by the director. Full Choir meets at 7:00 - 8:15 p.m.

Music and Liturgy
We celebrate a variety of musical styles with a blended worship of traditional and modern elements. Our choir director and organist, Steve Stucki, leads us in music from the piano and organ. The worship feel is casual, often interactive, and relevant to everyday life. We are fed and inspired to do God's work in the world in word, love and service.
Much of the words we say (our liturgy) and the hymns we sing in worship come from the book of Evangelical Lutheran Worship (the ELW), a hymnal used by many Lutheran churches. Our worship also follows an order common to many churches, described eloquently on the ELCA National Website:
"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. But we do not think about worship so much in terms of what we do. Worship is fundamentally about what God is doing and our response to God’s action. Worship is an encounter with God, who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ."
