Worship With Us

Worship is at 9:15am on Sundays with communion


You can come in your Sunday best, you can come in jeans and a t-shirt, or you can even come in your pajamas! God calls us to come just as we are and we welcome you, just as you are! Feel free to bring in any snacks & drinks as well.

Family Friendly

Kids are a part of our community and of God's family, so we welcome them and want them to be a part of our worship together. We have kids activity sheets and worship bags for kids to help them connect with the service and keep them entertained. The congregation truly feels blessed to have children present during service, and understand fully that can mean a little extra noise, after all children are children with little attention spans and big emotions. Please know and be assured they do not mind! It warms their hearts to hear that noise!

Everyone Is Involved

For us, worship is not a concert or a spectator's sport. Worship involves full participation. We all make up the body of Christ and in worship God meets us where we are and calls us all to worship together as a community in Christ. We will sing hymns together, pray together, share God's peace with one another, and share communion together each week.

Communion is Open to All

We celebrate communion every week. And, as Jesus said on the night he was betrayed, his blood was shed for ALL people for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore ALL people are welcome at the Lord's Table.

Fellowship Hour

Every Sunday after worship, we have time set aside for an opportunity to catch up over drinks and snacks and get to know one another a little better. This is a great time to meet some new people! Join us downstairs in the fellowship hall!

We have been a Reconciling In Christ congregation since January 22, 2012. 

ELCA congregation

Saved by Grace: Our Unshakeable Belief

We believe that we are saved by grace. We don't do things to "earn" our way into heaven or to earn God's forgiveness and love. Through the person of Jesus Christ and through his death and resurrection, we were given full access to God's love, forgiveness and grace now and forever through God's Spirit. And nothing can ever take that away from us.

As it says in Romans 8:38-39, "For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord...
