WELCOME TO JOY! - We have a place for you!

As a mission congregation of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC), we support the core values of the NALC. We are Christ centered, mission driven, traditionally grounded, and congregationally focused.

WE are not the mission. Our mission as a member of the body of Christ is to live the Great Commission. – And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)

We live the Great Commission every day, through worship, fellowship, and discipleship, as we learn to love God, love neighbor, and serve with joy in Jesus’ name. If you are looking for a (new) church home, have never known the love of Christ, or just need a place to experience the peace and joy of the Lord, we have a place for YOU! Come for a Sunday, a season, or a lifetime. Everyone is welcome!
