We have a multigenerational congregation with many retirees in the summer months. The people are friendly and enjoy visitors. We always have either a potluck or refreshments after the service that all are welcome to come to.
We have traditional Lutheran services with the whole service printed out in the bulletin. The church loves to sing.
There is a children's message included in the Sunday services, where the children are invited up front for an object lesson with the pastor. There are also children’s “bulletins” and activity bags for young children.
