Come Worship with Us!
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).
We will be receiving new members into our congregation in early 2015. Pastor Gretchen invites anyone interested in exploring what it means to be a member of American Lutheran Church to contact us and schedule a one-on-one meeting at the main office. Everyone is welcome to learn more about our pastor, congregation and our church community.
All Saints Sunday
As we celebrate the saints of all time and in every place on Sunday, November 2nd, we will be remembering members and loved ones who have died in the past year (since last All Saints Sunday, Nov 3, 2013).
Funeral Planning Workshop
On Sunday, November 2nd following worship and fellowship, Pastor Gretchen and Ron Reid will lead a workshop on preparing for your own funeral.
As a memorial to Ron’s wife, Sigrid, he and his children are making available a funeral planning guide for each family of the congregation.
When a death occurs it can feel overwhelming to make so many decisions in the midst of grieving. The ultimate gift to those we leave behind is to make our wishes known in writing.
