WORSHIP WITH GSL

All are welcome to all that we offer and to explore great musicWorship provides intentional opportunities for people to thank God for blessings known and unknown, connect with one another, be fed by Word and Sacrament, and be restored to face whatever lies ahead. Our various services offer readings from and meditations on the holy scriptures, music, and silence. Most services include sharing in Holy Communion from God’s Table as food for the journey. Community life is rooted in our Mission, Vision, and Inclusion. | Worship is available in person and via livestream and Christian Formation offerings for all ages are rich. Connection opportunities are essential and ongoing. Explore Virtual Offerings for worship and more.
