We are all at different stages of spiritual life and that spirituality takes different shapes and is expressed in a variety of styles. God starts with us where we are and who we are. It is our intention to do the same.
THE BOTTOM LINE
We are, first and foremost, interested in celebrating and proclaiming the love of God in Jesus Christ. God's love is amazing! It forgives our sin at the cost of Jesus dying on the cross. It picks us up out of darkness and brokenness of our own making or that caused by others. God always overcomes darkness by shining the light of His goodness and glory.
God did not send Jesus into the world to condemn the world, but that through Jesus the world might be saved. (John 3:17) Through Jesus all of God's promises find their fulfillment. In Jesus we have peace with God. In Jesus God takes us (formerly damaged goods) and makes us into containers that hold and pour out heavenly treasure - love, forgiveness, kindness, healing, direction, and more.

WHAT ORGANIZATION WE BELONG TO
We are a Lutheran congregation belonging to a group called Lutheran Congregations in Mission For Christ (LCMC). Jesus Christ and his Good News is the center of who we are. Mission, both locally and around the world is our joyful purpose. The Bible is our authority for faith and life.
It is our intent to welcome people into God's generous, transforming love; provide tools and experiences for people to grow into who God designed them to be; and develop a depth of faith to go into their world to make a difference in people's lives.
WHAT ARE THE SERVICES LIKE?
The Saturday 6:00 PM contemporary worship service draws people into worship through music and speaks into people from the Word of God. It's come as you are. God invites you to worship in Spirit and in truth.
The 8:00 AM service is our "blended" service; more informal with a mix of contemporary and other worship songs. Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday.
The 10:30 AM service is our traditional service, using a liturgy with spoken or sung responses. Holy Communion is celebrated on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.
Generally every 5th Sunday worship is led by youth or children with our Youth and Family Minister or Children and Family Minister preaching.
A Sunday morning is not complete without coffee time (with coffee, juice and donuts) in the Activity Center from 9:00 to 9:30 AM, followed by Sunday School for all ages.
A nursery is available for children, through age 4 years old, during worship, in the Education Building. (Under three years old during Sunday School).
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Really, anything you like. You'll find suits and ties. Jeans are abundant. We suggest something you're comfortable in... because that's what we'll be wearing.
