West Middleton Lutheran Church offers three inspiring worship opportunities each weekend. Worship is key to supporting our mission where we are powered by Word, Sacrament, and Spirit to be Jesus' work force in the world.
Our Saturday night service ministers to our community members who work or otherwise cannot attend services on Sunday mornings. These services are an abbreviated version of our Sunday 8:30 a.m. services.
Using the historic outline of Gathering, Word, Meal or Prayer, and Sending this worship opportunity uses a variety of classic and contemporary hymns to build our faith. This service also features a variety of musical talent. Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday.
Our second Sunday service is a slightly shorter, more contemporary option. This service aims to be very family-friendly. Music is provided twice a month by the Pioneer Praise Team, and often features rich solos to focus us on God's grace. Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday.
Musical Opportunities at WMLC
All adults are invited to be a part of WMLC's music ministry. Choir practice takes place on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m.

Congratulations on your engagement! At West Middleton Lutheran Church we wish to help you in the building up of your marriage in a faithful way. To help you get started in your marriage in a positive way we strongly recommend premarital counseling as a key preparation for your wedding day.
Please plan on contacting the church at least four months prior to your wedding date. This will allow things to go more smoothly.
The premarital counseling sessions normally involve four one hour sessions. We also need to schedule one session for planning your wedding service. These sessions will also give us an opportunity to get to know one another, and this will make for a much better wedding ceremony. Second, it will enable you to discuss issues that will play a central role in your marriage -- common values, hopes and dreams, children, religious background and spiritual convictions. Third, it will enable you to talk about marriage in general and your wedding service in particular. Remember, your wedding is the start of a life-long commitment and to help you build a strong foundation. Please contact the church office for more information and our complete wedding policies and planning brochure. Contact our church office with questions.
Baptism is God’s gift of overwhelming grace. Baptism is a once in a life-time event and is available to persons of all ages. Preparing for such a gift requires a time of instruction and nurture in the faith for a life of discipleship. To a life of faith in Jesus Christ we welcome both individuals and the children of active Christian parents to this great sacrament. We encourage sponsors to assist those being baptized both as they prepare for baptism and as they become Jesus’ disciples. We look forward to your or your child’s baptism as we gather together with the congregation for the celebration of Baptism within the worship life of West Middleton Lutheran Church. Contact our church office if you are interested in this life giving and changing sacrament.
