We are a congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

Sign up to attend church by clicking here.  Regular weekend worship is Saturday at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday at 8:00 and 10:45 a.m.  We keep an attendance record and contact list if we need to inform you that someone who attended your service tested positive.  

We began the Lenten season with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 17, hearing God's call, "Return to the Lord," during this 40-day season of following our Lord Jesus Christ through His suffering, death, and ultimately His resurrection at Easter.

  • Guests and visitors are welcome to come!
  • We currently worship in the Family Life Center, spreading chairs apart for social distancing.
  • Masks are required. ¬†We sanitize chairs between all services and Bible classes.
  • Sunday Bible classes (one for all our youth and adults) and Sunday school (for children) are held in-person at 9:30 a.m.
  • During the Lenten season, we offer additional worship services every Wednesday at 4:00 and 7:30 p.m. from Feb. 17 to Mar. 24, following the theme of "Return to the Lord." ¬†Each week will be on one topic: the Call, Prayer, Betrayal, False Witness, Denial, and the Kingdom of God. ¬†During Holy Week we will hold one evening service on Maundy Thursday at 7, two Good Friday services at 12 and 7, and then Easter services will be held at 7:30 and 10:45 a.m. (no Saturday service the night before Easter).

How to watch the service online (see YouTube video below)

  • We are livestreaming our services every Saturday at 5:00 p.m. ¬†That means you can watch it live, as it happens in real time or you can watch it anytime afterward because the recording remains on YouTube. ¬†If you arrive while the service is still going, you can click on the far left of the red "time" bar at the bottom to start the service from the beginning.
  • Watch worship by clicking the "play" arrow. Click here for the order of service.
  • YouTube is not allowing us to post our live video here while it is in progress, so when you try to play the service below, it will give you a link to the video on our YouTube channel. ¬†That video does work and you will be able to watch the service. ¬†After the service concludes, YouTube does allow us to share it directly with you here on our website. ¬†
  • Services from previous weeks are archived and viewable on our YouTube channel.
