We are a congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
Notice: Our church is located in Jackson County, whose Aug. 9 ordinance recommends mask-wearing indoors to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and its variants. The mask mandate applies to commercial venues, but provides exclusions for religious gatherings. Therefore, our congregation encourages the wearing of masks out of love for our neighbors, but we do not require masks in order to attend.
Three worship services each weekend: Saturday at 5:00 p.m., and Sunday at 8:00 and 10:45 a.m.
Guests and visitors are welcome.
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.
We worship in the Family Life Center until Sanctuary renovations and the office addition are completed.
A construction fence blocks Independence Avenue entry or exit. We enter and exit on Chipman Road only.
Christian education every Sunday at 9:30 a.m.
Sunday adult Bible class - Led by Pastor Andrews during the fall season
High school - Current topic: "Enduring Faith: Apologetics" led by Elisabeth White
Sunday school - Younger children led by Hannah Andrews, older children by Elizabeth McClain
