Creating connections between people, God, and daily living.

 

A congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we are a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person, complexities and all. We believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. In our work and our play, we strive to deepen our relationship with God and each other.
