Welcome to MLC!

4032694734_9279c4eaedWe’re glad you’re here and we hope that you will find the following information useful.

LOCATION

We’re at 649 Meadowsweet Drive in Corte Madera (Marin County, CA), one block south of Tamalpias Drive.   The church is within walking distance from Town Center, just west of the Corte Madera Public Library.    Click here for directions.

TO CONTACT A PASTOR

Please call the church office (415-924-3782) or contact us via email if you wish to speak to, or arrange an appointment with, Pastor Tom Gable or Pastor Kathryn Gulbranson.

OFFICE HOURS

The church office is open Monday – Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

PARKING

Street parking is available on both sides of Meadowsweet Drive.  On Sundays you may also use the triangular parking lot at the corner of Lakeside, Meadowsweet & Tamalpias Drives.

For those who prefer not to climb the stairs, you may enter the driveway at the far west end of the property and drive up to the upper patio area.  Passengers may be unloaded there.  At the east end of the upper patio there are handicap parking spaces.  The driveway loops around the church and exits where you entered.

Bicycle racks are found at the top of the driveway on the west end of the patio against the Fellowship Hall.

CHURCH ENTRANCE

Enter the church through the double glass doors at the very top of the stairs, off the upper level patio.

CHILDREN & WORSHIP

Children are always welcome at our worship services.   We support and encourage their participation from the earliest ages.  Children’s bulletins, coloring books & crayons are available in the church foyer.   Prior to the sermon the pastor invites all children to come forward for a special Children’s Message.

Our nursery is available for those who wish; it is located on the lower level of the church building (just below the sanctuary).

Sunday School for all children 3 years old through 5th grade begins at 9:45am in the Fellowship Hall next to the church building.  For those who attend the 9:00am service families with young children will be invited to take Holy Communion first so that the children may then attend Sunday School.

Classes for middle school and senior high-aged youth begin at 10:00am following the early service.

9AM & 11AM SERVICES

While the readings and the sermon are the same at both, the music and the liturgy are slightly different at the two services.  Our 9:00am worship is accented by a lively blend of both contemporary and traditional music.  The choir and Contemporary Instrumental Ensemble usually accompany this service.   At the more “traditional” 11:00 am service, worship takes on a contemplative character, evocative of the superb musical traditions for which Lutherans are famous.   The choir also sings at this service and is usually accompanied by the organ or guest musicians.

It is easy to follow the liturgy for both services as the prayers, responses and songs are all printed in the weekly Sunday bulletin which you will receive when you enter the church.

HOLY COMMUNION

Communion is served at both services every Sunday.   All who wish to receive Holy Communion are welcome to eat at God’s table!  You do not need to be a Lutheran or a member of the church.  Children are welcome to come forward for communion &/or a blessing.

In addition to bread, red wine is served in both the individual cups or the large Common Cup.  White grape juice is served in the individual cups for those who do not want wine.

ACCESSIBILITY FOR THE DISABLED

To access the church, drive up to the upper patio area at the far west end of the property.   There is a flat area and a short ramp that leads to the church. Several handicap parking spaces are available past the entrance at the east end of the upper patio.

A handicap accessible restroom is located through the open doorway off the foyer, directly across from the entrance to the sanctuary.

Assisted Listening Devices are available in a basket in the church foyer.
