Children’s Church

Jordan Hawk has been leading the Children’s Church program on the St. Peter’s campus each Sunday. Now this program is also available on the Light on Christ Campus, led by Michelle Harvey. Following the children’s message, children go to Children’s Church to learn more about Pastor Jerry’s message, and then return to worship before communion.
Children’s Church meets  in the Fellowship Hall. It is our hope that this experience will further bring God’s Word and Love to our children in a way they can comprehend.

At Light of Christ we worship according to the rich traditional liturgy of the church as presented in Evangelical Lutheran Worship©2006 ELCA, from which we use a variety of musical settings. We celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion at all weekend Celebrations. We use a wide range of hymnody, from old favorites to new hymns, including different cultures.

Worship is first of all praise of God, as we join in the never-ending praise offered by the church on earth and the hosts of heaven. It is secondly our nourishment by the Word of God and the Sacraments. The liturgy and hymns are full of biblical references.

Ministry of Music

Martin Luther wrote that music is the handmaiden of theology. Music lends a rich dimension to the words of worship and stirs our hearts in many different ways.

Organist/Choir Director – Linda Maule, Deacon

Light of Christ’s music ministry offers these opportunities for participation in worship:

  • Children’s choir (for children in grades 3 and up) rehearses once a week on Wednesdays from 4:00 – 4:45 p.m. and participates in worship every three to four weeks.
  • Senior choir (for high school students and adults) rehearses once a week on Wednesday evening from 7:30-8:45 p.m. and participates in worship three times per month.
  • Chime choir (for high school students and adults) rehearses once a week on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:15 a.m. and participates in worship 3-4 times per year.

In addition, we have opportunities for competent school age musicians or adults to play or sing appropriate selections to enhance our worship, as well as opportunities to participate in liturgical dance.

Fifth Sunday of Easter

Easter initiates a new day. It anticipates a new heaven and a new earth. The risen Lord is making all things new. In the mystery of Holy Baptism God has made new people of us. Today the Lord Jesus invites us to see everyone in a new light–through the lens of love.

Visions abound in the readings for the sixth Sunday of Easter. Paul has a vision about what to do. John has a vision of what will be. The risen Lord Jesus provides visions of peace that passes human understanding and power beyond human imagination.
