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

New Pastoral initiative: Workplace visits by Pastor Paul.
Beginning this fall, Pastor Paul will be visiting persons in their workplace (wearing what he calls his “uniform” – black suit and clerical collar) to see where you spend an important amount of time in your life, and meet your coworkers. He will then take you to lunch and ask, “Where do you see God in the place where you work?” and “How is God using YOU as you work?” This is part of an understanding of the Priesthood of All Believers, a central theological tenant of the Lutheran Christian faith.
