We are a congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
Worship services - There are three each weekend: Saturday at 5:00 p.m., and Sunday at 8:00 and 10:45 a.m.
We have returned to the Sanctuary for worship. Please enter the center doors into the narthex.
All three services use traditional hymns and liturgy from Lutheran Service Book.
Holy Communion is offered at every Saturday and Sunday service, using both Common Cup and individual cups.
Guests and visitors are welcome.
Note: We do not have recording equipment in the Sanctuary, so we are not able to post video recordings of worship on our website at this time. If you wish to listen to an audio recording of the sermon, click on the link below under "Listening or viewing."
This weekend is the Second Sunday after the Epiphany in Year C. You may find it beneficial to review the order of worship before you come. Parents can walk through the text with their children, so kids can ask questions, learn the meaning of words, etc., and be better equipped to follow along with the service. Adults may benefit from reading the Scriptures and hymns in advance, too.
