Worship with us!

Join us for Sunday morning worship at 9:00 am.

Sunday School will resume in September.

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.
