Pacific Hills Lutheran Church is a place where traditional worship is held each Sunday morning at 8:00 am and 10:30 am, as well as Wednesdays at 9:30 am.
In traditional Lutheran worship the service is focused on God: He forgives all my sins, freeing me to thank and praise, serve and obey Him. The liturgies used are based on Holy Scripture with portions sung and other parts spoken. Scripture readings for the day determine the theme for the day. The last Sunday of many months a separate liturgy, “Given for Me” by Charles Ore and Jaroslav Vajda, is used.
These worship services normally take place every week in the year in our sanctuary. Please check our full calendar for occasional changes.
- Sunday Morning Eucharist, 8:00 am and 10:30 am: During these worship services, we celebrate the Eucharist (that is, the Lord’s Supper) as God brings His gift of forgiveness through His Word and Sacrament. We use the traditional liturgy (order of worship) that has been passed down through generations of Christian worshipers as it is currently printed in Lutheran Service Book.
- Wednesday Morning Spoken Eucharist, 9:30 am: These worship services follow the same traditional liturgy as our Sunday services, but are spoken instead of sung.
Additional worship services include these events.
Fifth Sundays: When there is a fifth Sunday of a month, we combine the Sunday services, with one service at 9:00 am on that day.
Advent Services: During Advent, we also gather for services on Wednesday afternoon and evening.
Lenten Mid-Week Services: On Wednesday afternoons during Lent, we worship with song and sermon.
The Liturgical Church Year
Over the centuries since Jesus Christ walked the earth, the Christian Church has developed a calendar that celebrates His life year-round. It is a calendar year that is slightly out-of-step with the world’s (for instance, it usually begins near the last weekend in November), but it reminds us how God is at work throughout the year.
Learn more about this calendar and its weekly readings (lectionary) that we use to guide our worship lives at Pacific Hills Lutheran Church.
