The order of worship is also projected on a screen above our altar (at Sunday worship), so you don't have to struggle with books or get lost as to what we are doing. Worship is user friendly!

Fellowship with coffee and sweets are provided after service in the fellowship area where you can get to know others. Someone may contact you after your visit to follow up your experience.


Will I be welcome?

As a congregation, we have a history of being an open and inclusive congregation. All people are welcome to praise God and rejoice in the good news of Jesus Christ at our services. This welcoming toward all personalities, races, and sexual orientation is something our faith calls us to continue. You do not have to be a Lutheran or member of any church to be welcome.


Can I take communion?

All Baptized Christians are welcome at our Lord’s Table. Please come forward and extend an open hand, palm up, if you wish to receive the bread and wine. If you are not baptized or are waiting for your first communion, please come forward for a blessing.


What is the church affiliation?

Our church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and a member of the Florida-Bahamas Synod.
