We are a vibrant diverse community made up of life-long Lutherans and those who are new to the Christian faith. One will encounter wise seniors and little children in our midst. We are single, partnered, married, widowed, straight, LGBTQ. We are native Astorians and people from around the world. Our worship, theology and life together celebrate the abundance of God’s love, found in the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus!

Here you can laugh, cry, sing, eat, pray, serve the greater community, and engage in intimate conversations with us about life and faith.

In all that we are, we try to live our mission promise:

To Seek and Share God’s Grace Through Welcome, Worship & Work
