Everyone is Welcome!
Pastor Craig Sigmon has served our congregation since August 2013. He was born and raised in Claremont, NC. After graduating from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, he worked for nine years in the business world.
Answering God’s call to ordained ministry, he attended Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, SC, and graduated in 1996 with a Master of Divinity degree. Following his ordination into the Office of Word and Sacrament, he accepted a call to St. James Lutheran Church, Rockwell, NC, which he served until 2013. He and his wife, Susan, have three children and six grandchildren.
We have been proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in the Taylorsville community for more than seventy years. We are a vibrant and active small-town family of faith that seeks to be the body of Christ in the world sharing, through word and deed, the grace we have received and the good news of salvation through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Together, we are one family, guided by the Holy Spirit, welcoming all who desire to know, worship and serve Christ. Our mission statement defines us well: A family of grace, growing in faith, sharing God’s love.
MID - WEEK SERVICES
Mid-week services will be held at 12:05 each Wednesday in Lent, beginning March 4. Through the theme, At the Crossroads, we will be shown in some way how Christ and his cross lead us to decide the path of God's will for us.
Palm Sunday (April 5, 10:30)
Our service begins on the front lawn with the Procession of Palms. We enter the church in joyful praise, celebrating Christ’s triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem. The mood becomes more somber with the congregational Passion reading from Matthew's gospel, which will show Jesus as the one who dies abandoned by all. He shows himself to be the true Son of God by giving his life for those who have forsaken him.
MAUNDY THURSDAY SEDER MEAL
Maundy Thursday Seder Meal (April 9, 7:30)
The Christian Seder Meal celebration recalls God’s mighty acts of delivering the people of Israel from Egypt in the Passover. We observe the Seder with the traditional meal of roasted lamb, matzo bread, wine and herbs. Following the traditional Jewish meal, we will receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion, celebrating Jesus the Christ, our Passover Lamb, who delivers us from the mighty forces of sin, death and the devil, and brings us to new and eternal life.
GOOD FRIDAY TENEBRAE
Good Friday Tenebrae (April 10, 7:30)
This traditional service of shadows will focus our hearts and minds on our Lord’s suffering and sacrifice. This year's theme will highlight the paradoxes of the passion through readings, special music and meditation. There will be a gradual darkening of the church until it is in total darkness, symbolizing the gradual death of Christ. This is always a most inspiring service, and one that helps us enter into Easter morning with great joy and jubilation.
EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE
Easter Sunrise Service (April 12, 7:30)
We gather in the early morning hours to celebrate our Lord’s victory over sin, death and the devil, and to share in his holy, life-giving meal. This joyous and uplifting celebration of Christ’s resurrection will include our favorite Easter hymns. Plan now to bring the whole family and come. Our traditional Easter breakfast will follow the worship service.
