Making Christ Known

We are an Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) congregation growing in the likeness of Christ by:

Worshiping, praying, and studying God’s word;
Being together with other people; and
Acting in faith through words and deeds both inside and outside our church walls.


 A 3-Year Youth Ministry Experience helping equip YOU to say YES to God who said YES to YOU in your baptism. It’s about being a servant with a servant heart!
