WHAT LUTHERANS BELIEVE
Welcome in the name of Christ!
The Lutheran Christian worship tradition has a basic form that stretches back many centuries and provides stability in what can often be a chaotic world.
The Lutheran message is not one of endless demands for self-improvement or false promises of success if only we do this or that. The Gospel of Jesus Christ takes us out of ourselves, transcends the shifting and wandering fads of culture and, most importantly, focuses on what is most relevant - the gracious promises of God in Jesus Christ for you.
When the corona virus ban has been lifted, and we are able to gather again on our church campus, we invite you to experience our welcoming Lutheran tradition of timeless worship, life-long learning, and committed service and witness in the name of Jesus Christ. Until then, please feel free to join Pastor Mark here on our homepage, every Sunday via You Tube.
Stay safe and may the God of peace be with you!
ove one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12
Welcome! We invite you to worship with us. You will find yourself within a community of Jesus-followers deeply rooted in the solid teachings of Holy Scripture and seeing ourselves as living in continuity with 2,000 years of Christian faith and life – sometimes called ‘tradition’. We have not tried to accommodate our worship to the restlessness of an ever-changing, anxious world. Nothing could be more relevant in such a world than the richness, depth and stability of worship forms that have brought the Gospel to and sustained the lives of believers across the centuries.
Join us! You will be loved mightily for just showing up, even with your doubts in tow.
You are always welcome here.
WORSHIP WITH US
10 AM Sunday Mornings

We bear witness to Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, who was called "friend of sinners" during His earthly life. The gospels report time and time again of His welcoming into His fellowship those who had lost themselves in sin. As time went on, it was these lost ones who became the greatest witnesses to His love.
When we look at ourselves, it is easy to become preoccupied with what has been lost. This is not hard to understand, since dealing with loss is a central theme in our lives. When God looks at you through Christ, however, He does not see what was lost, what you have squandered or mishandled. He sees only His child, for whom Christ gave His life upon the cross, to whom He freely gives love and forgiveness in Christ. This is the heart of the Gospel.
hrist has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who trust in him are made right with God. Romans 10:4
The Christian is a branch who grows out of the life of Christ, the True Vine. Therefore, the nature of the Christian life is growth.
Currently, our pastor offers a weekly study geared for those who are just starting out in Bible study as well as more in-depth studies.
You are encouraged to ask questions.
We welcome a diversity of thought and perspectives.
We will help you make sense of your beliefs in a complex world.
The Christian life is one of service on behalf of the neighbor. It can involve everything from helping out with the Sunday coffee hour to involvement in the wider church and community. In the freedom which the Gospel gives, we give ourselves in service to both church and community. In the menus at the bottom of the page is a Local and Global portal to various service ministries of the congregation and to organizations which we support in our commitment to live out the love of God for the sake of the world.
ay you, together with all God's people, have the power to understand how broad and long, how high and deep, is Christ's love.
Our prayer chapel is open 7 days a week for all. It is an intimate, quiet place for prayer and reflection,a place hard to come by in the midst of our busy lives. You are welcome to stop in any time. You will find a book to enter your prayer requests, Bibles, devotional books and information about our congregation.
Martin Luther's Morning Prayer
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
I thank you, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray that You would keep me this day also from sin and every evil, that all my doings and life may please You. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen.
