Congregational Life at Beautiful Savior
Join our life of following Christ. Loving and being loved by God takes place in worship. Growing as disciples of Jesus happens through discipleship practices and education classes. Serving in the name of Jesus is where we use our hands to join God in his work.
Worship is the most important thing we do as a congregation. It is where God meets us to sustain us for our lives of ministry as disciples of Jesus. It is where God molds us and shapes us for the rest of the week.
What should I wear to worship?
Wear clothes. People here look like cowboys, business women, school kids, and retirees. Some people wear suits, most folks don't. Some people wear jeans, others wear skirts.
Where should I park?
The parking lot is located on the south side of the campus. Parking is free.
Is there a nursery?
Yes, a nursery is provided on Sunday mornings, and a volunteer will be arranged to care for children as needed. An usher or greeter will gladly walk you to and from the nursery (located in the Education wing) to help you get situated.
Can visitors receive communion?
Yes! We practice communion of the baptized, so all who are baptized - no matter the Christian tradition within which they are baptized - are welcome to receive communion. In communion we receive the real presence of Jesus. This is his body and blood shed for you for the forgiveness of your sins. If you are not comfortable receiving communion please come forward and ask for a blessing.
What time should I get there? Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before worship begins. That way you have time to get settled before things start.
