We welcome you to worship with us at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church. Worshipping here means: Connecting with God and connecting with each other. We strive to discover together a lifestyle of worship that flows out into our community. We hope you’ll want to become and part of that exciting adventure. WELCOME!
Some tips on worship at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church: If you are new to church or a first time visitor sometimes church can be a little intimidating. Here at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church we understand that. So here are some tips to help you feel more comfortable.
A) There is no “right” or “wrong” way to worship. Feel free to participate only in what you feel comfortable with.
B) The whole service is in this bulletin, if you simply follow along you’ll do fine.
C) Offerings are given as an act of worship. Guests and visitors are in no way expected to give but giving is always welcomed.
D) Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday morning. We welcome to the Lord's Table all who desire to receive God's gift of forgiveness and the powerful freedom of a new life in Christ.
E) Dress however you are comfortable: From jeans and sneakers to suit and tie, it’s your choice.
F) Enjoy! You’ll figure out the rest as we go along. Let God speak to you through the music, the words, and those around you. And finally, it takes most people more than once to feel comfortable at worship, so plan on coming back at least several times. If you ever have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
