Each person should have the opportunity to worship God in a way that he or she understands. Intentionally crafted by the caring professionals at The Lutheran Home Association, our “Worship at the Cross” service is designed to make each part of the worship service have special meaning, especially for people with cognitive impairments. The service has been tested with great success in congregations all over the world.

Throughout the service, your senses are engaged in worship:

  • You see 6 signs throughout the service. These signs are symbols that help illustrate each part of service.
  • You hear a bell ring to signify the beginning of the service. You are invited to participate in the service by singing and making music.
  • You can share prayer requests.
  • You have opportunities to sing hymns and play rhythm instruments.
