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.



First Communion preparation is offered to fourth grade students and older children who have not yet received Communion instruction.  Parents are expected to fully participate in the preparation process and there will be assignments for students to complete outside of the instructional time.

The instructional sessions will each include a meal and time for fellowship.

If your family is unable to attend a session, please let us know, and we will make alternate arrangements.
