Christmas FAQs


Do you have in-person Christmas Worship this year? 

No, all worship services will continue online in 2020. Please find worship details and links above and enjoy Christmas Eve and Christmas Day worship services in a safe and distant way.


Can guests or newcomers join for worship?

 All are welcome here! The beauty of a digital worship service is that anyone can join from wherever they are! Worship together virtually with family out-of-state, share the post with a friend across town, or invite a neighbor to watch.

With all of our worship services, we invite visitors and guests, those searching for a church home, those with questions, and all levels of beliefs. We have multi-faith families, life-long members, and even non-Lutheran members! Anyone can attend and participate at whatever level they're comfortable with. 

 

Are you a gay-friendly church?

Absolutely! We gladly welcome LGBTQ+ individuals and families. Since 1987, Reformation has been part of ReconcilingWorks, a national Lutheran LGBTQ+ ministry. Also, Pastor Ben is a member of Proclaim, the professional network of Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries, supporting LGBTQ+ Lutheran pastors, deacons, and seminarians. 

 

Will there be 'online communion'? Who can participate? 

Though we will not have communion on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, in-person, small group, distant, and safe communion will be held on Sunday, January 3. Details can be found by clicking here.

And just as Jesus was intentional in his welcome to the table, so are we! All people of any age are welcome to share in the Lord's Supper. It truly is the meal of God for the people of God!
