JOIN US IN WORSHIP!
What To Expect When You Worship at Nativity
We are a fun, modestly-sized congregation that warmly welcomes all who wish to join us. We are an ELCA congregation; you can visit the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America website to learn more.
Christian worship joyfully ascribes praise and honor to God and we believe it is vitally important for our faith and life. In worship the people of God acknowledge God’s presence in the world and in our lives. It is in worship that we offer ourselves to God and are equipped for God’s service in the world.
Where to Sit?
Feel free to sit wherever you’d like, whether the front or the back. If you need help finding or making your way to your seat, there are greeters at the entrance of the visiting area who are happy to assist you.
What to Wear?
While you will see most folks come to worship in nicer business casual clothes, we want to encourage you to come as you are; there is no dress code.
To enjoy some rare Seattle sunshine, we'll sometimes even worship on the patio!
What is the Service Like?
Our service is both traditional and casual, with a warm, familial feel of people who enjoy being together.
We use what is called liturgical worship, which is centered on Christ and has its roots in the early Christian church. Some parts of the liturgy stay the same each Sunday while other parts change week-to-week.
We serve communion every Sunday. We have a wonderful choir and music ministry (September – June) which is a big part of who we are. We also encourage everyone who is able and comfortable to join us following worship for a short time of fellowship, with coffee and light refreshments.
Even a downed power line won't stop Nativity from letting Christ's light shine!
What about Children?
Children of all ages are welcome at Nativity, and encouraged to worship together with their parents. We believe children learn to worship by worshiping, and are glad to have them among us.
Nativity loves welcoming children in worship!
