FOR INFORMATION ABOUT OUR WORSHIP SERVICES
We know that different people have different tastes when it comes to the style of the worship experience. While the message remains the same, @FJLC we enjoy a wide variety of worship experiences.
Worship is the central activity of the community of our faith and every ministry of FJLC finds its genesis in the communal act of worshipping God. Through Worship we are energized, enriched, engaged and challenged to serve as the presence of Jesus in our homes, places of work & play, and within the community of the church.

2nd Ave Campus Worship Schedule
Wednesday | 6:30 pm (Intergenerational)
Sunday | 9 am (Traditional Style)
Sunday | 11 am (Contemporary Style)
Our Sunday 9 am service is Traditional in style. We worship using liturgy, hymns and our common Christian Creeds. We celebrate Holy Communion weekly and find comfort in the time honored traditions of the church and our denomination. For those joining online - we have worship resources prepared in .pdf format for you.
Our Sunday 11 am service uses more contemporary forms of worship. We are led by our Praise band and use songs that are of the style that one might find on the radio. We celebrate the Sacraments of the church, we pray, and hear God's word in a way that is relevant to our daily lives. For those joining online - we have worship resources prepared in .pdf format for you.
Our Wednesday, 6:30 pm service is a part of our weekly youth programming. The messages are different from those shared on Sundays and usually follow in a series of teachings around a central topic. Our Youth in Compass (middle school) meet in small groups after the service to discuss what was talked about in worship and adults have an opportunity to meet and talk and learn in adult groups. For those joining online - we have worship resources prepared in .pdf format for you.
Special Worship Opportunities are celebrated at various times of the Year. During the 4 weeks prior to Christmas [Sunday November 28 - December 24, 2021], we celebrate Advent where we focus on what it means for us that God, out of total love for the world, sent us Jesus. We celebrate this season with Special Wednesday Worship Services focused on a central theme and an ingathering of items to be shared with those in need.
Lent and Holy Week | As we do with Advent, so too we prepare for Easter with special worship opportunities in Lent (Ash Wednesday [Feb 17] - Maundy Thursday [April 1]). In Lent we choose a theme that reflects the focuses of the purpose of Lent - self reflection and faith examination. Following Lent are the "Great Three Days" of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil. These services mark the passage of Jesus from the institution of the last supper to his crucifixion and burial. Resurrection is celebrated on Easter Sunday.
Our worship is an evolving experience in which we are always striving to provide a dynamic and spiritual worship experience joining time honored liturgies and fresh expressions of our faith. Our goal is to provide an experience that is relevant to life, comforting for the afflicted and afflicting to the comfortable.
