We're a Friendly, Welcoming Ministry of the NALC

We’re a friendly bunch of folks, trying to be good Christians and follow Our Lord in our Daily Lives. We’re not Saints, yet! But we worship the One who can help us grow in Faith every day.

“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness,” – 2 Peter 3:10-11
