Welcome Students

Our Lutheran Student Association meets in the College Room for dinner every Sunday night at 6:00 PM.
(And, since the College Room is available 24/7, students are in and out all the time!)


We Gather for Worship On Sunday mornings at 8:30 and 11:00.





Follow the… Star!


Our Health Ministry is planning a Walk to Bethlehem.” This virtual trip begins October 2 in Williamsburg and ends on Christmas in Bethlehem to celebrate Christ’s birth. So please join us as we follow the STAR.


Each week we will log our individual walking miles and plot them collectively on the world map. Any form of exercise (yoga, bicycling, golf, bowling, house work, gardening, etc.) may be converted into miles. For those who are unable to actively exercise, working on improving one’s balance and mobility can also be converted into steps!


We will begin distributing walking packets on September 25 before, between and after services.  But remember you can join us in walking at any time. So join us on the journey, and help us reach Bethlehem by Christmas.

Did You Know that the ELCA is the Most Ecumenical Church Body in the United States?

Always new


Since 1997, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has been in Full Communion (with interchangeable sacraments and clergy) with the Episcopal Church USA, the Presbyterian Church USA, the United Methodist Church, the United Church of Christ, the Reformed Church in America and the Moravian Church.  (None of them are in Full Communion with each other, only with the ELCA.)

That is why, each Sunday, prayers are offered for congregations of these churches in Full Communion with the ELCA: to highlight our unique openness to other traditions.
