All Are Welcome

At Lord of Love, when we say “All Are Welcome” we mean it.

Lord of Love is a church for all believers in Christ. All are welcome regardless of age, disability, gender, nationality, race, religious background, sexual identity, or socioeconomic status. We believe it is a standard set by God. We take the banner of the ELCA, “Making Christ Known” and seek to help others know the richness of a life with Christ.

Come visit us any Sunday. You will find members and friends who have come from many different backgrounds to find a home at Lord of Love. We are challenged to live out Christ’s words in John 13:35, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

We welcome all to join us on our journey of faith. Come and experience the saving, life changing, and healing community of Lord of Love Lutheran Church.
