This Week's Message
Holy Trinity.png

August 7, 2022

(Time after Pentecost)

Jesus says, “It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” It is God’s promise from the beginning—to Abraham, to the early church, and to the “little flock” of which we are a part in today’s assembly. Faith, God’s baptismal gift, trusts the promises of God. Have no fear.

From Sundays and Seasons





Can you help us?

We are trying to find a photo of each of the past members of Lutheran Chapel that have a stained-glass window in their honor/memory.  We know there are still family members from many of these folks and we would love to add a page to our website with the dedication and the photo. We have photos for two of the windows so far. Take a look. For more information about this project, click here.

Our Mission


We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
