WELCOME. We are glad you’re here. 

 
We know it is hard to visit a new church. 
But know that you can come as you are.
You are a beloved child of God,
and there is a place for you here.
 

WHERE ARE WE? 

 
 

What to Expect on a Sunday Morning

  • Expect to be warmly welcomed for exactly who you are. It doesn’t matter if you have been a member for 50 years or if you are joining us for the first time, this congregation will show you love and welcome you warmly.
  • This is not a perfect church. As there are no perfect people, there are no perfect churches. That’s where God’s grace, love, and acceptance come in. We hope you experience that here. 
  • Our worship service is traditional, lively, and relevant.
  • People of all ages are welcome in the sanctuary for worship. Do not worry about your small children being loud. God tells us to “make a joyful noise”, but doesn’t specify what that noise sounds like. Your child is always welcome in worship. There is a nursery available and in the space outside of the sanctuary you can hear and see the worship service. 
  • Children’s Church, our version of Sunday School, will be starting back up later on this summer (2021).
  • Expect to be challenged by the readings, the prayers, and the sermons to live into the teachings of Jesus and act on them here and now. 

 

Our Hope

A world where everyone knows Jesus Christ’s presence and unconditional love through our words AND actions. 
 

Living and loving like Jesus

We are Lutherans, but first we are Christian. The Lutheran church was founded in the 1500’s by the followers of the Protestant Reformer Martin Luther. Martin Luther was a monk, priest, and teacher who, after learning the original languages of the Bible, was amazed by God’s unconditional love for all people through the life, death, and resurrection of God’s own son Jesus Christ.  He realized that salvation is acquired through faith alone in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.  That is Good News for all of us. 

 
Everyone is welcome in God’s kingdom… also known as the Body of Christ… God loves unconditionally and so do we!
 
We are a congregation affiliated with theEvangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Check out their website for more information on social statements and stances made by this larger church body we are a part of. 
 

What we Believe

Our faith is professed the words of the Apostles’ Creed:

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.  He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.  He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.  He descended into hell.  On the third day he rose again.  He ascended to heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.  He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church (as in all
Christians), the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.
 

Luther’s Small Catechism

In addition to the Creeds of the Church, Martin Luther wrote a teaching tool for parents of the household.  Today this little booklet continues to educate people on the basics of the Christian faith.  You may see it HERE.
