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.

Meeting Groups - through May 2017


Below are listed our regular The Story meeting groups.  We will not be reading additional chapters during Lent, but rather focusing on the life of Jesus.  Most of our groups have decided to take a break for Lent, but they will begin meeting again regularly after Easter.  (NOTE:  The groups breaking for Lent are indicated below.)
