Here are a few common questions that are asked about our worship services. Let us know if there is anything you are unsure about. We would love to have you join us soon!
WHEN IS the service?
During the current COVID-19 Pandemic, several changes have been made to our normal worship service schedule. Please visit our COVID-19 response page for the latest information on service times, availability, and locations.
Where do I park?
We are located on Eastern Ave between Gage Ave and Florence Ave. We have a parking lot behind our building, a public parking lot adjacent to our building, a public parking lot across from our building, and plenty of street parking. The entrance to our church is near the front of our building, located along Eastern Ave. Look for tall purpose flags along Eastern Ave to help find our building.
What is the worship style?
Our worship services follow an order of service, or liturgy. This liturgy is printed out in our service folder and is easy to follow. The liturgy follows a traditional format that honors the history of the Christian church while incorporating new variety to keep worship vibrant.
What language is the service in?
Currently, our Sunday morning service is in a bilingual format. Some parts of the liturgy will be in English and some parts in Spanish. We sing hymns with both English and Spanish verses. The sermon is also delivered using a mixture of both languages. At times, the bilingual format may require a little sacrifice or patience. However, it allows more people to gather together at one time. It also gives us a glimpse into the heaven, where people from every nation, tribe, people and language will be worshiping Christ (Revelation 7:9).
What if my child is noisy?
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these (Matthew 19:14).” We love children in the worship service. In fact, we encourage them to be present to become familiar with the worship experience. However, if you feel they need a little break, we have family room at the back for your use. Feel free to take your child to this area anytime during the service.
Does it matter what I wear?
Sometimes people wonder how they are expected to dress at a church they’ve never visited. The Bible gives us no dress code, aside from simple decency and Christian humility, so Cristo Rey Lutheran Church doesn’t make any rules either. Like most people, worship time is special to our members. This is often reflected in the way they dress. But the way you dress is a personal matter. You can dress casually and rejoice that we have a God who accepts us as we are. You can also dress more formally to reflect the awe and reverence we have for our Savior King.
