Our call to justice is embedded within every worship service at ECLC.  Our worship is centered on the liberating story of Jesus: his life, his bold challenges to the powers of empire, his suffering and death at the hands of his oppressors, and his overcoming all the powers that still strive to hold back and hold down people on the margins. We gather at the table each Sunday to meet Jesus and are sent out to be Christ’s presence in the world.

We use a variety of musical styles (protest songs, world music, bluegrass, paperless songs, and favorite Lutheran hymns) and instrumentation (from piano, guitar, and bass, to accordion, banjo, and pipe organ). Each Sunday morning the two services are identical musically, but they are different from week to week.

The preacher changes from one week to the next, too. Sermons are usually given by Pastor Jeff Sartain, Pastor Anna Helgen or Deacon Lauren Morse-Wendt.

Services use the historic order of the liturgy (Gathering, Word, Communion, Sending) with inclusive language and contemporary settings.

Children are welcome – wiggles and all. We believe that faith is passed on in song, prayer, and by being present in the worshipping community. Nursery care is available for children under age 5 for those times when children or caregivers need a break.

We gather around the table for Holy Communion every Sunday morning. All who wish to take part are welcome – without exception. Please join us!
