Offering and Signing of the Friendship Register

Members and visitors, each Sunday please take a moment to 
sign the Record of Fellowship register found in each pew with these simple steps: 

1. Print your name (first and last) and complete the form. Adults complete for small children if necessary.
2. Pass the pad on, and when it reaches the end of the pew, pass it back: noting the names of others.
3. After worship, greet your fellow worshipers by name, and introduce yourself if they are not familiar with you.   


Become a Supporting Congregation of Luther Classical College

Why now? Conservative Lutherans have been asking for a classical Lutheran college for decades. And though classical colleges have popped up all around the country and have been very successful, not one has been Lutheran.

As American culture continues to slide, we need a college that purposefully emphasizes and instills Christian culture throughout its curriculum.

Given the political climate in our country, we need a college that does not depend on federal funds and which is still affordable for our youth.

Why congregations? Luther Classical College exists to educate young men and women for congregational life, so that they graduate eager to support their local congregations and raise their families in the church.

We believe direct congregational support and involvement will help keep the college Lutheran and focused on its goal, which is to strengthen our congregations with committed Lutheran families.
