WHAT TO EXPECT
We’d love to see you this weekend!
At Marin Lutheran Church, our doors are open to everyone – a Reconciling in Christ congregational family. We are a gathering of people who are:
- Welcoming of Families and Children
- Open and Inclusive – affirming all are wanted, loved and belong here
- Committed to learning, serving and following Christ
- Active in our Community
- Joyful in Worship
A Warm Greeting
We want you to feel comfortable and to know you are welcome here! Our greeters & usher are here to help you find what you need, whether it’s our nursery in the Parish Hall, large print bulletins, Children’s Bulletins, our sanctuary doors, or anything else…
Each Sunday we offer a worship service at 9:30am with scripture readings, a time for the children, prayers, joyful music, a sermon, offering, Holy Communion, and a benediction.
Our nursery for infants & children (up to 5 years) and Children’s Church (for all kids 3 years – 5th grade) is located in the Parish Hall adjacent to the sanctuary building.
Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday. You don’t have to be a member (or a Lutheran) to partake with us. As we share in bread and wine (or grape juice), we believe that Christ is truly present in the sacrament and among us. We welcome all baptized persons to join us for Communion, as they are comfortable doing so. Children are welcome to commune or to come forward for a blessing.
If you are unable to come forward to receive Communion, please let the usher know and Pastor will be happy to bring Communion to you so that you may remain seated.
Please join us after worship for coffee, tea and refreshments. You’ll have a chance to meet Pastor Tom and chat with others in the church.
Peruse our info and sign-up boards in the church entry hall to learn how we support our broader community, enjoy fellowship through events, picnics, Bible studies (Women’s/Men’s), luncheons, Book Club, craft workshops and much more… We look forward to meeting you and learning how we can help you connect at MLC.
We know it can be a little strange to go somewhere new. Additionally, there are many kinds of churches. It can be difficult to sort them all out. Here, then, are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions. Please feel free to contact us if you’d like more information.
