Lenten Worship Services

12:15 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Throughout the season of Lent, we worship eachWednesday at both 12:15p.m. and 7:00p.m. in the Sanctuary. Meals are served prior to each midweek worship service. A delicious lunch is served at 12:00p.m. and soup and sandwich suppers are served at 6:00p.m. Come and grow in your discipleship to Jesus this Lent as we are fed in both body and soul!

The employees of this church, in all of their services – both within the congregation and in the fulfillment of the Church’s mission in the world – shall carry out the duties to which they are assigned in faithfulness to the faith and mission of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Please join us on Sundy April 30, 2017 for the BE BOLD kickoff lunch. To make your reservation, simply click on the "Be Bold" link above and submit your name and the number attending.

VBS Registration Form

July 17 - July 21, 2017

We are going to mix it up at VBS this year. Dates will be the mornings of July 17-20 with an evening picnic on Friday July 21. We are looking for volunteers available during the day that week but also volunteers to help coordinate. So even if you are unable to attend during the day, we would love your help lining up volunteers and selecting activities. We are also going to try a new format. Instead of 1 teacher per grade with several students, we will set up in groups of 5 students of various ages. This way we can really focus on building relationships and the kids have a sense

of cooperation instead of competition.

We will also need station leaders for snack time, games, imagination station, and bible discovery. So whatever your time and talent, we could use your help! We will be utilizing the Maker Fun Factory - Created by God, Built for a Purpose curriculum. Please contact Liz Hearring at for more details.

New Financial Health Ministry Team

The Financial Health Ministry Team is organizing a variety of classes/seminars/lectures that we hope will help all of us get financially fit for the future. We need your help to figure out what to do first! Please take a brief survey.
