You can choose your friends but you can’t pick your family.
Though they are the closest people to us, related by blood and more, family relationships can sometimes be the most challenging of our lives. They can have the opportunity to be those with the greatest rewards. In this series, we will gain God’s perspective on how to navigate through the complexities of family life today. No matter what your family looks like for real, God can get it on a path towards ideal.
Please join us for this worship series that runs from May 13 – June 17, Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, 2018. Worship services are held at 9:30am.
On Easter we came alive to Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. We can continue to come alive to the power of his resurrection for our own lives as we realize the new identity he has given us.
I am the vine; you are the branches.
Jesus said these words about us. We are branches connected to this life-giving vine. During this worship series, we will explore the confidence and comfort we have as Jesus’ resurrection power flows in and through us. The words of 1 John will guide us as we grow in our knowledge of Jesus’ promises and power.

People are passionate. They are passionate about sports, whether to vaccinate or not, politics; blue or red, conservative or liberal. People are passionate about colas, coffee, and country. Our most serious passions tend to divide us, yet a closer look at our lives demonstrates that our struggles, questions, and fears are shared. We are more alike than we realize, not only in our faults and failures, but also in our need for a Savior. Jesus, that savior, was passionate about us. His passion for us became passion suffered in our place to free us. That’s something worth being passionate about.
In this worship series, we will take a look at the people of Jesus’ passion nearly 2000 years ago. We might feel so far removed from those individuals we can’t imagine we share anything in common, but their struggles, questions, fears, and temptations are contemporary.=
What can we learn about these people of the passion? What can we learn from them? What will they teach us about ourselves and our own struggles in faith? During the 40 days leading up to Easter, we will take a closer look at these people of the passion, and we just might see each other too.
This season discover how you too are among the people of the passion – Jesus’ passionate love for you.
Begins Ash Wednesday, February 14th, at 6:30pm
Then continues on Sundays, February 18 – Mar 25, at 9:30am
For millennia this world has been locked in a cosmic battle waged between the forces of evil and the forces of good; the servants of light and the servants of darkness.
No, this is not the opening line to the next Marvel movie release. This is a description of the world which you inhabit. You also play a role in this cosmic battle. How is the war going?
Does darkness prevail? The news cycle barely breaks from the last outburst of violence and another tragedy of bomb, blade, or bullet breaks our hearts. Or perhaps our hearts are shattered enough by the darkness that has invaded your own life – marriage crumbles, addictions grow, relationships tear apart.
Yes, the battle between good and evil seems to wage with ever greater force, but one event changed the course of that battle for all time. A baby was born. Laid to rest in a manger. Not just any baby, this baby was the light of the world. He came into the world on the first Christmas, and we’ve celebrated this arrival every year since. The light of Jesus Christ shines into the darkness of our world and the darkness will not overcome it. Light shall reign.
This Christmas join us to discover the hope, peace, and confidence Jesus brings and to know that Light Shall Reign forever.
Candlelight Worship – 6:30pm
There will not be Sunday morning worship on December 24th.
Celebration Worship – 9:30am
Worship series continues on Sundays, December 31 – February 11 at 9:30am.
As you look at your life, what do you see? Do you see any reason for joy? Any reason for a sense of purpose? Any reason for comfort?
That may depend on where you look. Contemporary life and events seem to make it hard to see such vital things. Perhaps we begin to think that no one sees them in their life. Maybe no eye has seen purpose, or joy, or comfort in a long time.
Yet, if you look in the right place, your eyes will see what they otherwise wouldn’t. They will see no other God but the very one who has created you with incredible purpose; who has formed you with his very own hands to lead a fulfilled life of joy and comfort.
This God, the all-powerful deity ruling over heaven and earth, did something no eye had ever seen until he did it. He sent his only Son to live and die for you. He sent his only Son to take the weakness and suffering and mistakes of your life into his own, so that you could enjoy freedom from them. He sent his only Son to forgive you. Prepare to see him in all his glory this Christmas. Prepare as you join us leading up to Christmas.
To see this God is to know that there is no other. No eye has seen any other God, any other comfort, and any other joy than what is found in him. Let’s seen him.
Series runs on Sundays, December 3 – December 17, at 9:30am
500 years ago God used a monk named Martin Luther to spark a revolution that would take over the church and the world. Yet, at the heart of this significant historical event is the simple message God has for people. Not only does this simple message change the world, but it changes your own heart. It is the simple message that you are saved by scripture, by faith, by grace, and by Christ – alone.
Join us as we explore four pillars of what it truly means to be a Lutheran and why that might be vitally important for you.
If you’ve ever left your phone at home, you know what it’s like. You’re disconnected. The difficulty of going “unplugged,” even for a day, is that we crave connection. This need to belong drives many of our choices. It is part of what makes us human. Yet, too often it escapes us. We are disappointed by the very people to whom we felt most strongly connected.
You belong here.
It’s exciting to that sense of inclusion. When God initiated the Church, he had in mind a heartfelt connection of diverse people. He said that the greatest love we could show was to lay down our lives for our friends, but in truth, it was God who laid down his life for us; in order to call us friends – even brothers and sisters.
The Church is a community of people committed to doing life together and knowing God. God wants each of us to find a place of belonging in his family and at his table. He himself has opened the door for it.
Please join us for this series that kicks off on Back to Church Sunday.
Its origins are mysterious. It starts insignificantly small, but spread and flourish to become majestic. It is treasure worth everything you own, yet it is scattered recklessly by its creator. It establishes peace unknown anywhere else. It is The Kingdom and you are invited.
It is Christ’s kingdom of triumph and victory for you. Please join us as we hear Jesus describe his kingdom with unique illustrations that invite us to take our place in it.
