You can enter the Fairlawn Lutheran parking lot from Smith Road or from Market Street - you will see LED signs at each entrance. The church is immediately west of Summit Mall. [see Directions below] You can drop guests off at the front door using the circular drive closest to Market Street. Handicap parking is available next to the front doors and in the parking lot, and we have an elevator.
You will see people in everything from suits and dresses to jeans and t-shirts.
We have three services each weekend:
The Saturday service is held in our Chapel.
The two Sunday services are held in the sanctuary. The only difference between the traditional and contemporary services is the music. The traditional services feature our organ, choir, bell choir and soloists. The contemporary service is led by our worship team and features guitar, keyboard, drums and vocalists playing contemporary worship music.
All services feature prayers, music, Bible readings, a sermon, offering and communion.
Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday at Fairlawn Lutheran in the glad confidence that our Lord Jesus, as His word says, gives not only bread and wine, but also His true Body and Blood for us to eat and drink for the forgiveness of sins. Our Lord invites to His table those who, repenting of their sins, believe His word that He is really present for our forgiveness. All baptized believers who hold this confession, and seek to live in Christ’s forgiveness with each other, are invited to receive His Sacrament.
Communion wafers are given first, then you may choose to take the wine in a small cup or from the common cup. Gluten-free wafers (small bowl) and non-alcoholic wine (center of the tray) are offered for those who desire them. Communion can be brought to the seat of those who cannot walk to the front of the church - just let an usher know.
Children and those who are unsure about the Lord’s Supper are invited to come forward to receive a blessing by
crossing their arms over their chests. Pastors would be happy to answer questions about communion before or after the service.
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION HOUR
On Sundays at 10am (between services from Sept-May), there are learning opportunities for all ages. We typically have four different Bible studies for adults, a Bible study for youth in grades 7-12, and Sunday School for children age 3 (and toilet trained) to grade 6. Children three and younger are welcome in the nursery.
We have a staffed nursery available to all attendees each Sunday during both services and during the Christian Education hour. Baby changing facilities are located in the ladies' restroom and nursery.
