All in-person indoor activities are canceled indefinitely but we’re seeing many parts of the country begin reopening. The church council has been discussing whether or not we felt comfortable opening up our building for people to gather. Acting out of an abundance of caution and love for our church family, we do not feel comfortable reopening the building at this time. We want to learn best practices so that we can figure out a phased plan, and we are using data to help guide our decisions. Pastor Sarah is in touch with pastors in the area and we’ll keep everyone updated. Read the church council’s latest assessment.


Faith Foundations led by Pastor Sarah

Date change: Wednesday nights, beginning October 7, 2020 from 7pm – 8:30pm.

Bible study, reflection on what it means to be a Christian, Lutheran fundamentals, and sharing our lives together.  It’s a Bible Study, small group and an adult confirmation class all in one. We’ll study, share, sing, pray, and serve together.
