Who We Are
Our mission is simple...
As for me and my house we will serve the Lord in how we Love, in how we Live, and in how we Give.

We are an active, growing, and energetic congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (www.elca.org) and the Northeastern Iowa Synod (www.neiasynod.org).

We offer both contemporary and traditional worship services and offer faith building opportunities for people of all ages.

VBS is getting closer!!Food, supplies, time, and money are needed to have a successful VBS week. We are well on our way to having over 100 kids attend our joint VBS again this year! Without generous people like you, VBS cannot happen. We THANK YOU for supporting this valuable ministry. You can find a complete list of items needed for VBS at tinyurl.com/mtmxrhs3 or by scanning the QR code in the photo. In the coming weeks, there will also be donation tickets on the Fellowship Hall window you can grab to donate certain items. As always, financial donations are welcome and will be used towards food and craft supplies. Many thanks for your generosity and support of VBS! We are excited to explore Babylon with the kids and learn all about the life of Daniel! ... See MoreSee Less
