WELCOME TO NATIVITY LUTHERAN CHURCH
We can't wait to meet you. All are welcome.


Nativity Lutheran Church was first started in 1963. Our current building was built in the 1990's. 

We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and we welcome you as you are.  Worship is Sundays at 9:30 a.m. We celebrate communion each week when in person and everyone may come forward to participate. Sunday School and a nursery are available during worship. Bible study meets on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. in person at church (except for holidays). Our monthly evening Bible study meets on the second Tuesday at 6:30pm.

Volunteer your talents and skills or time by signing up for weekly ushering, fellowship time food & drinks or flowers and readings. Click here to sign-up digitally or sign up in-person on the Northex on our sign-up sheets.

Please bring a mask and social distance. We also enjoy Fellowship time after services.

CHRIST'S CHURCH

We are what God has made us – people whom God has created by grace to live in union with Jesus Christ and has prepared to live faithful, fruitful lives by the power of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:8-10). In Jesus Christ, God has reconciled us to God and to each other. As we gather around word and sacraments, this life in Christ is what defines, shapes and guides us as a community of faith, the church. 

By God’s grace we can and do live confidently and generously in this community of faith and in service of others, amid the mysteries and paradoxes of this life in Christ – including our human limitations and failings, and the ambiguities, uncertainties and suffering that we experience.

 

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)    

We are Lutheran

We are a church that walks by faith, trusting God's promise in the gospel and knowing that we exist by and for the proclamation of this gospel word. We proclaim Jesus Christ crucified and raised from the dead for the life of the world. As the apostle Paul wrote (Romans 1:16-17), and we echo in our Constitution (2.02), we are not ashamed of this gospel ministry because it is God’s power for saving all people who trust the God who makes these promises. “We are to fear and love God, so, that we do not despise preaching or God’s word, but instead keep that word holy and gladly hear it and learn it” (Small Catechism). God’s word, specifically God’s promise in Jesus Christ, creates this liberated, confident and generous faith. God gives the Holy Spirit who uses gospel proclamation – in preaching and sacraments, in forgiveness and in healing conversations – to create and sustain this faith. As a Lutheran church, we give central place to this gospel message in our ministry.

We understand to be Lutheran is to be ecumenical – committed to the oneness to which God calls the world in the saving gift of Jesus Christ, recognizing the brokenness of the church in history and the call of God to heal this disunity.
