For Lutherans, worship matters!  

In fact, worship lies at the heart of how we understand ourselves together.  Each week we are gathered around the means of grace and sent into the world to proclaim the good news that we have seen, heard, and tasted in that gathering.  Our worship life is meant to be an encounter with Jesus Christ that propels us into the world for mission.

Special services from the past. . . 

Outdoor Worship Services and Church Picnics



In August we had our Outdoor Worship and Church Picnic at the Ojibwa Campground Lighthouse.  It was an awesome day – lots of sunshine and warm breezes on one of the many beautiful shores of Lake Superior!  Pastor Julie led an inspiring service and we all painted our own special rock to show a personal meaning of Jesus in our own lives; whether that be a word or a simple picture.  The pallet is displayed in our narthex  – along with things from past years that we have made as a congregation at our Outdoor Worship Services.  
The same time of year at the same place for our 2018 service!  

This year’s theme was ‘Peace’ – the peace of Christ within us; peace with each other, peace in our community, and peace among the nations.  As a visual reminder of Christ breaking down the barrier of hatred that divides us, we made peace flags. The freedom of creativity flowed from the fabric markers onto the multi-colored squares.   The flags will be strung through a rope to hang outside the church entrance.      


Blessing of the Animals Worship Services



In commemoration of St. Francis of Assisi in October,  bring your animals to church with you!  Fur or feathers, young or old, short or tall, to receive their blessing during the worship service!

The Blessing of  Animals services are always very interesting and fun!  All of the animals being very well behaved during their blessing – afterward the whole congregation plays kazoos!

Native American Sundays in November      

November 2017 –  Joe Dowd, Cultural Advisor at Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Community College and second-degree Midewiwin, joined us on in celebration of National Native American Heritage Month.  Joe spoke to us about the Midewiwin lodge (their place of prayer), the learning process for a Mide, and religious ceremonies. We were inspired by his teaching of how every part of the earth is sacred. Our liturgy flowed with Joe’s teaching as we united in praise of our Great Creator.
