Please join us for worship with Holy Communion
every Sunday at 10 am in person or via Livestream!
PLEASE NOTE: Coffee fellowship is suspended until further notice
due to COVID numbers.
As of March 21st, masks are recommended but not required for all indoor spaces at Luther Memorial Lutheran Church. The council based this decision on the recent steady decline in the number of positive COVID cases in Montgomery County, Virginia; the current CDC and government guidelines suggest that masks may be optional in indoor settings. Members and guests who want to wear masks indoors are welcome to continue doing so.
Luther Memorial has two parking lots - one off of Tom’s Creek Road and another off of Prices Fork Road. If you park in the Prices Fork lot you can enter the worship area through either the Fellowship Hall or the front doors facing Prices Fork Road. If you park in the Tom’s Creek lot, you can enter the building through the Christian Education wing. Please continue through the building and take the elevator at the end of the balcony or go down the stairs to arrive at the worship area.
As you arrive for worship, you will be welcomed by a greeter. If you have any questions or require any special assistance (such as a hearing device or a seat with high intensity lighting), please ask the greeter or an usher for assistance.
Children are welcome in worship! Children's church begins after the Children’s Sermon during Sunday morning worship. Children will be escorted back to the Sanctuary prior to Holy Communion. If you need to comfort your child, we provide a quiet room off the Sanctuary where you may listen to worship.
Our worship service averages one hour in length. Lutherans sing and pray using the Lutheran Liturgy and hymns; we hear Scripture readings and a sermon; we pray together; and greet one another in the Peace of Christ before we receive Holy Communion as the Body of Christ. Guests may participate in all or some of these worship activities, as they choose.
We gather as God’s people around the Table of our Lord Jesus. In the sacrament of Holy Communion, we encounter the Risen Jesus who gives himself to all, for the forgiveness of sins. Jesus makes no restrictions at his Table and neither do we: everyone is invited to participate, including young children. You may choose to receive a pastoral blessing instead of Holy Communion. Pastor Monica offers Holy Communion instruction for people of all ages.
Christian Education classes (Sunday School) meet on Sunday mornings during the academic year. We also offer several adult Bible studies, including online classes. Click here for more information on our Faith Formation program.
The church office is located in the smaller of the two buildings off of the Prices Fork Road parking lot. The entrance is identified by a canopy marked “OFFICE.” The office is staffed from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. The office is closed for all federal and Commonwealth of Virginia holidays. Pastor Monica observes Monday as her Sabbath day each week.
Pastor Monica is available to accompany you on your faith journey through Pastoral Counseling, Spiritual Direction or with information about the Christian faith, the Lutheran denomination, and Luther Memorial’s faith community. Please contact Pastor Monica at email@example.com.
