Prayer and Support

If you are in need of prayer support or a pastoral visit, you are always welcome to contact the church office. We also have a volunteer fellowship team. These trained individuals can visit you, bring communion, and read the weekly Gospel when you are not able to attend church for health or family reasons. Contact the church office for any needs you may have.

ELCA: Always being made new. 25 years together in Christ.

“So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us; we entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” — 2 Corinthians 5:17-21

We are a church that is deeply rooted—and always being made new.
