Who We Are
We are part of the LCMS (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.) Read more here about what we believe to be true.
Dress attire ranges from casual to typical church dress; come as you are and be comfortable!
Our normal Sunday services last approximately one hour with adult and children Sunday School in between services.
Parking and Entering the Building
We have visitor parking in front of the main church entrance and additional parking in the parking lot at the back of the church. You will also find handicap parking in both of these areas as well.
There are two entrances into our building. From the parking in front of the church you can enter through the double wooden doors. From the back parking lot you will enter through double doors on the lower level. From here, go straight down the hallway until you reach the elevator and/or stairs on your left. At the top you will will go to your left and the sanctuary will be on the left.
If you attend our Praise and Worship service it is held in our gymnasium. It is best to park in the larger lot at the back of the church and enter through the double doors; once inside go left out of another set of double doors into the breezeway. The gymnasium is located inside the purple double doors at the end of the breezeway.
There are restrooms at the back side of the sanctuary and restrooms in the gymnasium lobby. You will also find water fountains in both locations.
Children of all ages are welcome in our worship services. We have "busy bags" located in the narthex immediately to your right when you enter the main church entrance. You may also ask a greeter who will be at the entrance.
Nursery Service is offered for ages 2-5 years old from 10:45 am - 12:15 pm in Room 102. An usher or greeter can direct you to the nursery.
