Our combined family has been worshiping in the current building since its dedication in 1974. As the center of focus in our sanctuary, a simple cross of wood reminds us of the humble service our Lord has rendered â€” dying to make us His own. Worship is central to our life as a family of God. Fellowship is also a very important part of the life of our congregation. We enjoy visiting over a cup of coffee or a meal. A Daycare and Learning Center was established in 2003, and operates Monday to Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Enjoy quilting? We have a quilter's group that meets each Wednesday. As a member of the Lutheran Churchâ€”Missouri Synod, our congregation holds to the Holy Scriptures as the inspired Word of God, the only rule and norm of our faith and life; and to the Lutheran Confessions as the true exposition of that Word. We are a liturgical church, enjoy singing the hymns of the faith from the Lutheran Service Book, and observe the historic festivals of the church year. Join us for worship; pull up a chair for lunch after the service; give thanks to God with us for the gifts He gives us in Jesus Christ our Lord!
