A Message from Pastor Ryan

Welcome to American Lutheran Church. I’m Pastor Ryan and I’m new to the community too. I couldn’t be more excited to be part of this church’s progressive growth. I am a pastor, teacher, activist, writer, husband, and father. My greatest passion and calling is to create sacred spaces and opportunities for people to explore their faith, spirituality, life and experience radical love and healing. That’s why I became a pastor and that’s why I write and create. 

Join us as we collaborate with one another and with God to facilitate a just and generous Christian community.

 Come Worship at ALC!

We invite all into our inclusive, diverse community of faith as we seek to live the way of Christ’s unconditional and reconciling love. Just as Jesus welcomed each person as a beloved child of God, so we welcome people of all ages, races, ethnicity, culture, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic, family or immigration status. Basically if you’re breathing, you’re welcome here. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey this is a non-judgmental place where doors are open and questions are always invited. Feeling spiritually connected in today’s complex society can be challenging. Join us as we grow in faith to do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.

“Peace be with you” (John 20:26)


“American Lutheran Church is called to witness the Good News of God’s love through service in our community and beyond.”
