Each year we gather together to celebrate the Advent season through a special event for families and friends of all ages and stages. This year, we will be sharing a light lunch together after worship on December 11 and then work on tying fleece blankets for the homeless. Please join us to make a real difference for those without shelter this winter season.


Splash! Faith Formation from birth to age 3

Traditionally called "Cradle Roll," this ministry is aimed at our youngest members – our children from birth to the age of three.  At baptism, we as a congregation make a promise to support the baptized and their families in their spiritual journey.  Through resources offered by our congregation and Augsburg Fortress we can help parents in their role of bringing up children of God. Splash! materials are sent out on a regular basis which offer ideas for faith-filled play, worship, meals and prayer together.  It is one way as a congregation we stay connected with young children and their families.   Read more »
