Nativity Lutheran Church formed in 1961. Our first building was constructed in 1963, and our current one was built in the 1990's.
Sunday morning worship is our main gathering – at 9:30 a.m. weekly. We celebrate Communion each week and invite everyone to participate.
We have multiple Bible studies during the week, as well as other activities – check those out on our "Events" page.
Nativity has been growing and is excited about our future – hopefully with you! Check out our other pages to learn about the ministries we currently do and our vision for the future.
What we believe matters...as does how we live it out.
We’re Christ’s church – we don’t own the Gospel, nor the Communion table, nor faith. We have been created by God to live in the wonder of God’s grace. Jesus frees us for direct relationship with God, and the Holy Spirit helps us live faith-filled, impactful lives in the world.
We center our life together around the Bible and the Sacraments of Baptism and Communion. They guide and shape our congregation, and how we interact with the community.
We are people who recognize we live in a real world, where black-and-white answers don’t always work. We fail sometimes, succeed sometimes, experience joy and suffering, and know that while God is actively doing work in the world, it’s often completed by our human hands.
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.
