Core Values

We are Christians.

We value worship together.

We practice open Communion – which means all are welcome at God’s table.

We read and preach the Bible, with an emphasis on love and grace. We try to find connections for today while keeping an eye on the historical context of then.

We connect with God in prayer. 

We believe in serving others and making a difference in the world. 

We care about others and try to work for justice in society.

We are Lutherans, part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  You can learn more about our denomination at

Lutherans are part of a reforming movement that started in the 1500’s and continues today.  We seek to be always reforming even while grounded in God’s word and centered in God’s grace.

We are diverse and inclusive, welcoming people of all ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations and identities, and socio-economic reality.

We welcome ALL! – Including YOU!
