Divine Service

As a rule, we celebrate our services in liturgical form. In doing so, the congregation is actively involved through its participation in the worship celebration. Pastors, readers, organists, choristers, sometimes ministrants and all church attendants contribute their own part to the success of a worthy and fortifying worship.

Martin Luther did not wish to create a new church. Out of this tradition, full worship with a sermon and the celebration of Holy Communion (or Eucharist, Greek = thanksgiving) is celebrated often and in the form of the Lutheran Mass. Thus, our worship emphasizes the communion of the Western Church in a confessional Lutheran manner.

Children’s service is celebrated every Sunday and on church holidays parallel to the adult service (beginning just before the sermon).

Beginning in November we will again have two services (9:30 and 11:00) each Sunday.

The following special rules must still be followed:

  • FFP-2 masks are required for ages 15 and older (children ages 6 to 15 regular masks) and must be worn upon entering and leaving the church building and during the service.  We have masks available in the foyer should you not have one with you.
  • Please disinfect your hands before entering the santuary for the service (disinfectant is available in the foyer)
  • No group formations in the sanctuary or fellowship hall before and after church,
  • Keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters between persons of different households,.

Due to the distancing during the services, the number of people in each service is limited. We ask that you register for the service by e-mail or telephone by Friday or latest Saturday afternoon, so that we can plan the seating in the sanctuary.
