Creative and Engaging Worship, Sundays at 10:30 am with Sunday School for ages 3-12. Join Us!

Our Mission . . .We believe in a loving, merciful, generous, and creative God. In response, we will create a faith community that welcomes all and encourages everyone to grow spiritually as disciples of Jesus Christ.
We do this by:
– welcoming all into our faith community as we work to eliminate the barriers that may divide us
– building on the Lutheran tradition to grow in stewardship, discipleship, and caring for one another
– engaging in partnerships with community organizations, area congregations, and the wider church to help those in need
