Nazareth Lutheran Church

About Us

Know Christ. Grow in Christ. Make Christ known.

We are a church and community of sinful people, believing God can save us and use us for His glory. We value holy discontent (to right the wrongs around us), responsiveness (getting things done), relationships (because we are better together), and leading beyond our walls (around the corner and the globe). For more information and the latest events, please check out our website (, Facebook, and Instagram.

What to Expect

What are services like?
At Nazareth, coming together to worship God as a community is an important part of helping us to grow in our mission: “Living together in God’s amazing grace, we invite all people to know Christ, grow in Christ and make Christ known.” All are welcome. Come as you are! We have 2 worship styles to choose from. The 9:00 a.m. Worship Service typically features hymns, organ music, an ensemble of Worship Leaders, a Children’s Sermon, and the Nazareth Choir, all of which is a more traditional feel and style. The 10:45 a.m. Worship Service typically features a full band of Worship Leaders including vocalists, drums, keyboard, guitar, and bass, all of which is higher energy and contemporary. The messages are the same at both services. We now offer online and local TV viewing opportunities. Check out to find out when and where you can give our services, at a time that best works for you!

What is the community like?
We are a deeply-rooted congregation in our community. Most Sundays, we see over 500 people attending, and have around 2000 active congregation members. Depending on what your schedule allows and your needs are, we offer a wide variety of ministry opportunities, assistance, and education. Whether it's just learning about who Christ is to having a long and fruitful relationship with Him, we always know there are Next Steps to take towards a better and stronger relationship with Christ and His community. Check out to see where you belong in our community!

What if I'm not a Christian?
All are welcome at Nazareth. We have a rich history in Cedar Falls, and have been serving the Cedar Valley for over 150 years. Our Mission and our Values guide us to be a people and place of grace; we encourage you to come as you are. If you want a more in-depth explanation, check out or send an email to [email protected], where we can guide you to answers about who we are and what we believe.
