Wednesdays During Lent and Advent
We follow the Christian liturgical calendar beginning with Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost seasons. Members are encouraged to help with worship in a variety of ways. Reading, set up, greeters, and more all make worship possible.
Holy Communion is celebrated at most worship services. We believe the sacraments (bread and wine) are God’s gift of grace to all people for the forgiveness of their sins through Jesus Christ. Through this meal, we celebrate and dwell in the presence and mystery of the Triune God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.) All are welcome to share in Holy Communion at HTLC regardless of age, membership, or frequency of participation. We serve alcohol free and gluten-free options to include all in the sacred meal.
Families are always welcome! There are high chairs in the LFC, toys in the nursery, changing tables, and we love kids in worship… yes! even when they’re noisy! The nursery is just down the hall for your little ones in worship if they need some extra room to play. You can hear the service through the sound system while they get that energy out!
From casual to "Sunday best"... wear what feels comfortable to you!
This year HTLC shared the good news of Jesus Christ through 108 worship services, by welcoming 34 new members, affirming seven confirmands in their faith, celebrating six baptisms around the font, preparing 76 school kits, crafting over 150 quilts for Lutheran World Relief, engaging in hundred of hours of care ministry, hosting over 10,000 hours of community and congregational youth development programs, providing $35,000 of mission support to the Northeast Iowa Synod and Camp EWALU, giving away 75,000 pounds of food to food-insecure neighbors, and providing 125,000 hours of high-quality childcare through Noah’s Ark, thus meeting neighbors in need in our community and beyond.
The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
ELCA teaching or theology serves the proclamation and ministry of this faith. It does not have an answer for all questions, not even all religious questions. Teaching or theology prepares members to be witnesses in speech and in action of God’s rich mercy in Jesus Christ.
