(If you are worried about communion and receiving from the chalice,
individual cups are always still available.)

The Coronavirus pandemic drags on. We have been through the initial stages, the closures, and now some re-openings. Things continue to change and I'm sure there will be more changes in the future. As a church, our goal is to remain as open as we can while maintaining safety and striving to follow the guidelines our civic leaders establish and recommend. We do so not in fear, but in love for our neighbor. For in this time where many remain confused, concerned, and in fear, people need the stability, foundation, and peace that only Christ, His Word, and His sacramentally received gifts can provide. We are confident that our Lord will be with us through this time and work good for us, as He has promised.


Sundays, our church is OPEN for the Divine Service, though we are not yet offering Sunday School or Bible Classes. We encourage safe social distancing, and if you have been recently exposed to the virus or have any symptoms, we ask that you refrain from coming to church for a couple of weeks.

We are
continuing to livestream our service on our YouTube channel for those who are unable to attend in person. Go to our Livestream Page for more information.
