Welcome to our website. We are so glad to have you check us out. We want to be a place of refuge for you; a place where you can find strength and stability in a time that is so unstable. Please browse and take advantage of the offerings we have in place for you. We know that the Church is not a building; we know that the church is people who gather around the Word of God and rest under the shadow of the Almighty. We welcome you to leave a prayer, a question, a comment; we want to be available to you please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Pastor Dave Nuss
Our Pastor is ready to serve you and will care for you as family. Pastor David Nuss leads our congregation. He shepherds his flock with tireless energy, preaching, teaching, guiding, and encouraging us both in the church and where we live.
Our church offers a meaningful Christian atmosphere for people with special challenges. The program has been running continuously for over 50 years. We offer weekly Bible school on Saturdays from 10 am to noon during the school year. Each week the program includes time for devotion, sharing through prayer , Bible stories, singing, activities, and a light snack. We also have a week long VBS for the class during the Summer.
Our church has a very active LWML group that meets monthly. Each Spring the group has their major fundraiser making thousands of chocolate covered eggs for Easter. While this is an LWML project most of the congregation comes out to help make the eggs. Proceeds from the fundraiser go to support good works locally as well as mission work in other countries. In addition to the local activities some members participate in regional and national LWML activities.
For our fall quarter, Sunday school will be available online via Zoom. We will begin September 20th. Our exciting online curriculum will incorporate scripture, music, and videos. The instructon is intentionally available to a large range of age groups. If you are interested in having your child joinus, please contact the church office: (302) 629-9975
Our small but active youth group comes together regularly for fun, fellowship and food. The leaders provide a safe nurturing Christian environment where all teens are welcome.
Our contemporary service is supported by a group of musicians and vocalists performing today's Christian favorites. Our traditional service is supported by our organist for liturgy and hymns. Our active choir performs at the traditional service Fall through Spring. Our Men's Quartet and Summer Singers group round out our music program. Last, but not least, our Pastor Dave will often pass out the song books and share his talents on the guitar for a little 'Joyful Noise' to set the mood before meetings and gatherings.
We have a growing and active Stephen Ministry program. Stephen Ministries is a one-to-one lay caring ministry. Our congregation has several trained Stephen Leaders and a dedicated group of Stephen Ministers who are trained and actively serving the needs of our community.
Our Evangelism team is actively engaged in recruiting 'everyday missionaries' to join Jesus on His mission. We are using the steps outlined in Greg Finke's book, Joining Jesus on His Mission, along with the LCMS Southeastern District iNeighborhood program to reach beyond our church walls to bring the good news of God's love into the neighborhoods where we live, work and play.
Our church fellowship hall can seat 120 for dinners and the adjoining commercial grade kitchen has helped turn out many delicious meals. Our dedicated fellowship team keep things running smoothly for the various dinners, potlucks, workshops and other activities happening in our congregation throughout the year.
We began our new Sunday School Curriculum: DIG IN! On Sunday, October 4th via ZOOM!
This program is for all elementary/early middle school students. DIG IN! is from the same publishers that provided our "ROARINLY" popular Vacation Sunday School last summer. Each lesson will feature scripture, songs, and videos in a fast-paced lesson. We begin at 9:45 am each Sunday. All are welcome!
