Nativity Lutheran Church welcomes and affirms all people to be who God created them to be. As a community of faith, believing that each individual person uniquely embodies the image of God, we strive to love the way Jesus loved, to value and support each individual, to denounce hatred and discrimination, to advocate against injustice, to be a reconciling presence in our community, and to treat each individual as a beloved child of God. In that spirit, we welcome people of all races, ethnicities, backgrounds, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions, family situations, ages, incomes, political persuasions, faith traditions and faith experiences. Come as you are, whoever you are. You are welcome here.
We offer relevent Christ-centered worship for all ages. Inspiring music and engaging liturgies with Biblically based sermons help us sense and share God’s love.
We enjoy a variety of fellowship activities. Each Sunday, we enjoy refreshments –often homemade – while we visit with each other following worship., We also have special gatherings throughout the year.
We offer education for Christian living for all ages. Classes taught by our pastor and trained lay members, address various topics including Bible studies, basics of the Christian faith and Lutheran perspectives on current events and issues.
