What to Expect

What are services like?
Services follow the 1979 Book of Common Prayer (Rite II) and the Lutheran Evangelical Book of Worship, setting 1. We like to involve children in the service as much as possible, so, for instance, children help with the offering as well as providing programs for special occasions. We love children's voices in our services!

What is the community like?
Our church family is open, friendly, and welcomes young and old alike. If you want to slip into the back row and leave without being noticed, this church isn't for you!

What if I'm not a Christian?
If you aren't a Christian, don't let that hold you back. Come try us out and see what we have to offer. We realize that many people have been beaten up by religion, and we do our best to practice the radical hospitality of Jesus Christ, realizing that we don't have all the answers, but that, together, we can uplift and encourage each other on our journey.
