Upcoming Worship Services
FIRST SUNDAY OF CHRISTMAS- Sunday, December 29
There will be no in person worship on this day. The service will be prerecorded and available on YouTube. A service of Lessons and Carols Bible readings and Christmas Carols tell the story of the promise of a Savior and the Incarnation
We respectfully ask that you remember your tithes and offerings as your gift to God. The work of the church continues despite the fact that we are not gathering on Sundays.
Gracious God, it is good for us to gather as your beloved in community. We treasure your presence with us in word and meal, song and prayer. Be with us in these days when gathering together as we would like is not possible. In this time of being apart for reasons of safety, we trust that you surround us with your sheltering wings. Encourage us in connecting as we are able, reaching out to our neighbors in need and being persistent in prayer. We ask this in the name of Jesus, our constant companion. Amen.
Through worship, we gather as a community - a family of faith – to hear the Word of God, to praise our Lord, to offer prayers of thankfulness, healing and hope for those we know and love and for all of God’s world, and to receive absolution (forgiveness of sin) and the grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus, through Holy Communion.
Worship is every Sunday at 8:30 and 10:45 am

The beauty of being an ELCA Lutheran is
you are allowed and encouraged to think and ask faith questions. We have basic faith tenants, but when it comes to many issues of faith and ethical life, our church gives guidance to you and encourage a specific belief or practice, but does not require people to all think or believe the same thing. Hence, regarding current hot button issues such as homosexuality, abortion and gun control our members may not be like-minded.
Who We Are
We are a congregation united by our love for Jesus and committed to a common mission to share the gospel and be Christ in the community.
We are more interested in praising God than just attending worship. More interested in serving others than being served. More interested in discipleship than membership. We are the HANDS, FEET, EYES... and VOICE of Christ as we live out our faith each and every day.
REACHING OUR COMMUNITY
In response to God’s gift of grace, we have a number of vibrant ministries that allow us live our faith, grow in our relationship with the Lord and connect with each other.
