Adult Ministries

As a Lutheran congregation, we are committed to guiding adults from a Biblical perspective toward Christ-like Discipleship.


Our Vision for Adults:

  • That they will know Jesus Christ.
  • That they will know God’s Word.
  • That they will know themselves and grow in their own spiritual walk.
  • That they are prepared, able, and desire to share the love of Christ with others.
  • That they will demonstrate their faith, as they mature, through good works.

How you can get connected:

  • Attend a Sunday morning class
  • Attend a weekday Bible study
  • Participate in a Friends N Faith Group (FNF)
  • Join us on a Women’s or Men’s Retreat
  • Serve by volunteering to lead or assist in a class, a small group, an FNF group, help out in our church library, and/or by joining one of our retreat teams.
