Our congregation is a diverse mix of young and old, urban and suburban. Here you will find tradition meeting contemporary. Always, though, we teach and preach the Word of God in it's truth and purity. We enjoy having college students join us and are always uplifted to see their energy and spirit! We support local Hmong ministry and the Jesus Cares program for people with special needs. Our youth programs are ever-growing and fun, and we are always happy to add more students in our Lutheran elementary school. We are expanding efforts in the early childhood area, so be on the lookout for new opportunities in that field. Come and join us!
