We are planning to relaunch our in-person worship on Sunday, June 14, with an 8:00 AM Classic Worship Service and a 10:15 AM Abiding Praise Service. We want to make sure everyone who wants to worship with us in-person will be able to do so comfortably within appropriate spacing and careful celebration of The Lord’s Supper. We will take every reasonable step to ensure that the space is appropriately cleaned before, between, and after each worship service. Those attending in-person may choose for themselves if they are going to wear a mask. Our plan is to provide a mask if you do not have one and would like to wear one. Finally, please know that our worship services for the foreseeable future will be in the Luther Fellowship Hall in which we have the ability to reliably and throughly clean common surfaces including chairs, door handles, bathrooms, etc.
To Help Us Plan: Please share with us if and when you will comfortably return to in-person worship at Abiding Savior be completing this brief form: Returning To Worship Form
Please know that the relaunch of worship may slide further into the future based on what we believe to be reasonable state guidelines.
Until then we will not gather for worship on Saturday evenings or Sunday mornings until further notice. We will Live Stream a worship service from Abiding Savior on Sundays at 10:15 AM. The video of the service will also be posted online so that you may view it at any time during the week. You can find the link to the upcoming stream below.

About Our Worship
As God’s people, united in faith around God’s Word, we are given a tremendous freedom in how we can choose to worship. At Abiding Savior, this means that while we have three distinct styles of worship in any given weekend, we truly believe that they are all unified in purpose and can be a blessing to you no matter what your previous experience.
Our traditional services is at 8:00 am on Sunday employs more traditional instrumentation, the organ, choirs, bells, etc., and generally follow an established liturgy. The liturgies and hymnody are rooted in musical and theological tradition, but could be written anywhere from a thousand years ago to the previous week! This gives this service a tremendous sense of connection with the past, but also a connection to the present-day church and, hopefully, a sense of communication with angels, archangels, and all the company of heaven.
Our contemporary services (5:00 p.m. Saturday and 10:15 a.m. Sunday) generally involve acoustic rock worship leadership with guitar, drums, keyboards, and vocals. Blending the newest in contemporary Christian music and the best of the worship life of the Church throughout all ages, we maintain a devotional, congregational-song focused service, always directed towards God’s Word and its place in our lives.
Our Praise & Nurture Worship Service is held in the Adult Education Room. It is a service designed for our friends with special needs. It is a full worship service with the Lord’s Supper, easy to understand Gospel message, and prayer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The service time is 11:00 AM on Sundays. The majority of people attending the service are our brothers and sisters in Christ who generally live in the Bethesda Lutheran Communities homes in the area. Family friends, and guests are welcome.
For festival services (Easter, Christmas, Holy Week, etc.), you will most likely see a blend of all of our various types of worship. On these occasions, we gather everything we have as a congregation and present it to God, united as one body of Christ!
