What does Lutheran Church believe?
Lutherans believe that individuals receive this gift of salvation through faith alone. Saving faith is the knowledge of, acceptance of, and trust in the promise of the Gospel. Even faith itself is seen as a gift of God, created in the hearts of Christians by the work of the Holy Spirit through the Word and Baptism.
I’m not lutheran - would i still be welcome?
Yes! We rejoice in a diversity of beliefs and traditions that people bring to our community, and our lives are truly enhanced by the presence of each. We welcome all through our doors.
All are welcome – there is no entry requirement. We would be honored to play a role in your search. Just as Christ loved all people regardless of their upbringing, their sordid pasts, or their religious devotion (or not), we will lovingly receive you with open arms no matter where you came from or what you believe.
What is your worship like and what should i wear?
Traditional but fresh. We deeply value our Lutheran heritage, and follow the traditional liturgical order used by many Lutherans (as well as Episcopal, Orthodox, and Catholic churches), but our hymns come from both traditional and contemporary resources.
You can wear whatever you are comfortable in. People come dressed in anything from jeans to suits.
i have children can i still attend?
Children are especially welcome among us in worship! In fact, we encourage the multi-generational environment that worship allows. So if your child makes a little noise, it won't bother us! If, however, you'd be more comfortable taking them out for a break, please feel free to use the gathering space or the nursery, which is staffed by caregivers during Sunday worship.

Yes - Here at LCC We offer a Free Drop off nursery care and provide quiet toys and books for them to use in worship, there is a children's sermon, and, if you need it, there is a play area next to the church office where you can sit with your little ones while still being able to listen to the service.
