SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP 9:00 a.m.
Our worship service is broadcast on KFIL 103.1 FM every Sunday at 11:00 am or audio live-streamed on the internet at kfilradio.com. You can download the weekly bulletin here to follow along. You can also watch the service on the local Harmony Cable Channel 9 on Monday at 6:30 pm.
Greenfield has a traditional style of worship service with Holy Communion served every Sunday. We have an open communion policy. All who hunger and thirst for God’s grace are welcome to commune. Our prayer is that in worship all may hear the good news of God’s love for us in Jesus Christ. Communion is usually served at two stations in front of the pews. Bread wafers are served, but gluten-free wafers are available at request. Wine is served with a grape juice option for those who prefer that.
Our service lasts one hour. We follow the Revised Common Lectionary schedule of Bible readings for each Sunday. You can find out more here http://www.elca.org/lectionary From Dec 2016 to Nov 2017 our readings will focus us on the Gospel of Matthew.
Greenfield’s Sanctuary is handicapped accessible. Enter on the 1st Ave SW side of the building on the west and proceed down the hall to the Sanctuary. An elevator at the entrance will give access to the basement. Bathrooms are also handicapped accessible and a Unisex bathroom gives access to wheelchairs.
Children are welcome in worship. We have a children’s message each Sunday. A Giving Jar gives an opportunity for children to get up and bring an offering forward each week. There are “busy bags” for young children to play with during worship. We love children in worship and don’t mind a little bit of fuss. Children who have not had first communion instruction may come forward at Communion time to receive a blessing.
You don’t need to dress up to come to worship. People come in all kinds of dress. God welcomes us all regardless of what we are wearing. Just come hungry to hear God’s word and receive God’s grace for you in Jesus Christ.
“When I was a little boy, my mother would call us to come for supper. The first thing she said when we arrived was, ‘Wash your hands.’ In worship, God calls us to come and eat, and the first thing God says to us is, ‘Come as you are! Let me wash your dirty hands for you.’ This is the gift God offers us in Jesus Christ, forgiveness of our sins and love beyond imagining. We don’t have to make ourselves presentable to God. In fact, we CAN’T! We can only come as we are, trusting in God’s promise in Christ.”
