Summer Blended Worship - 9:30amUpcoming Sermons
During the summner months (from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend) our 8:30 (“Spirited Traditional”) & 10:30 (Contemporary) Worship services are shifted to a single blended service combining elements of both services.
Our “Spirited Traditional.” service which follows the general flow of the Lutheran liturgical service is modified so that it is more “user friendly”
for those who have not been brought up in a liturgical worship setting, or who are new to Christian worship.
The music from this service features the old time hymns that are fondly remembered by so many people, and makes worship meaningful for them.
Our Contemporary worship service highlights contemporary songs, which express the faith in an upbeat and up lifting manner.
The music is played in such a way that it doesn’t overwhelm the senses, but rather invites participation.
The general flow of the Lutheran liturgical service is still followed in this blended service, but again, it has been modified to be more "user friendly".
In lieu of Sunday School breakout sessions will be held during the service to make the message more accessible to the children. They will return to share commmunion with their family.
Holy Communion at Desert Streams.
Desert Streams Church celebrates open Communion at every worship service. All who gather for worship are encouraged to participate. Children may receive the bread and the wine (or grape juice) with the permission of their parents, or they may also come forward and receive a blessing. (Non-gluten crackers are available for those who are sensitive to gluten.) First communion instruction is offered every fall for children whose parents want them to celebrate communion. The curriculum, which Desert Streams uses, has age appropriate lessons for pre-school children and older. Check the announcements and activity calendars for times and places. If you have questions, please contact the church office.
