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

The JRR Tolkien Discussion Group is intended to raise awareness of the literary works of JRR Tolkien. The stories he wrote are truly legendary. The themes within them of eco-spirituality, of escapism, of hope all apply today, especially in our rapidly changing chaotic world. We start reading the Lord of the Rings on Saturday, August 24. You can join in at any time. You can access the book in pdf form at  http://www.tolkiengrace.weebly.com
