The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. 





Pastor Doug Knupp will serve as interim pastor for this time of transition as with God’s help and guidance we seek to call a new full-time pastor.  In the meantime we are thankful and joyful to have Pastor Doug serve.
