Two Worship Styles

  
Expressive, participatory liturgy, thoughtful preaching, a blend of new and traditional hymns, and soul-stirring music are some of the elements you can expect to encounter at Spanaway Lutheran Church Sunday by Sunday.  We keep time by the seasons of the church year and tune our hearts, minds and spirits to the ever-present NOW of God. Worship leadership is shared by ministers, lay people and musicians, including Cheryl Drewes, Director of Music Ministries , and our dedicated volunteer Music Team and Chancel Choir.  For more on the structure and movement of worship, see Worship Nuts and Bolts, here.

Classic Worship with Communion

Contemporary Worship with Communion

  
  An organ and piano led liturgical Holy Communion service, featuring a combination of treasured hymns, new and old worship songs, as well as global music. The Chancel Choir sings here regularly, as well as the children's choir, a variety of instrumentalists and soloists. We pull out all the stops: classical, modern, and world music!
  
  A casual Holy Communion service featuring the best of contemporary classics, today’s contemporary songs and timeless praise choruses.  Worship is lead by our Music Team, comprised of vocals, guitar, piano and drum set. We offer sacramental worship with a beat: timeless, and always in the now!
​ 

Choirs & Ensembles

  
  There is an old saying that “One who sings, prays twice.” We welcome and encourage your participation in the church’s song, both by your praise and prayer from the congregation, and by your participation in one (or more) of Spanaway Lutheran’s music ensembles.  Each opportunity is volunteer oriented, and strives to enrich worship with a diversity of music.  Please contact Cheryl Drewes, the Director of Music Ministries, to become involved!
