Nativity welcomes everyone to join us Sunday mornings for liturgical Lutheran worship at both 8:30 and 11:00. The last Sunday of the month features acoustic guitar services done within the order of worship. The entire church is handicapped accessible and the services are hospitable to all. A variety of additional pastoral ministries are offered, including:
- Pastoral Counseling
- Pastoral Visits with Eucharist
- Ministry to the sick and shut-in
For more information, please contact us or call Pastor Freed at 716-652-5880.
Children are welcome at Nativity in the sanctuary during worship even if they are crying or making noise! Let’s be honest though, an hour service can be a lot to take for a little one. So we have a bright and clean infant/toddler room available during both worship services for parents with little children. It is staffed during the 11am service year around. There is a changing table with supplies (diapers, wipes, powder etc.) and plenty of toys to keep them busy!
The Sunday school hour is from 9:45-10:45am from September thru May. It includes 3 year olds through 6th grade, high school and adults. The Sunday lessons for children may include songs, crafts, and lots of fun for them as they learn about the love of Jesus. The adult forum is usually topical discussion within the framework of our Christian Faith. We have on-line registration for our Sunday School Program https://eastauroralutheran.org/programs-education/
All baptized Christians of any age are welcome to communion at Nativity. However, we do provide instruction in the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist for children in the 5th grade on a Saturday in the Spring time. The children receive their First Communion the following Sunday during the regular 11am worship service. They are recognized together and each child receives a bible provided by the church.
The Confirmation class is for 7th and 8th graders. We meet every other Sunday evening from 6:30-8pm September thru May. The Affirmation of Baptism (Confirmation) is made in their 9th grade year on Reformation Sunday, which is the last Sunday in October.
7th through 12th graders gather at least once a month for activities together and with the regional Lutheran Youth WNY. These include both fun faith building/sharing for them and service toward others.
