This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

All are welcome

GSLC is a community of people called together by God’s Holy Spirit who confess Jesus as Lord. We are called to welcome all into our midst so that, together, we may proclaim the good news of salvation through our Savior, Jesus Christ. We are a congregation of all ages and come from a variety of religious backgrounds. 

Worship is central to our life and faith as we celebrate the Word and Holy Communion each Sunday morning using a variety of liturgical and musical styles, including organ, piano, and a worship band. 

Following Christ’s example, we strive to raise up those less fortunate than ourselves and make the world a better place through outreach, community service and advocating justice.

We care for and support one another through prayer, fellowship and small group relationships.

Please feel free to come dressed however you are most comfortable and you will fit right in.

No. Many of our members come from a non-Lutheran background.

Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday. You will be directed to come forward. You will receive bread first, followed by wine or grape juice in individual glasses. A gluten-free bread option is available. If you do not wish to commune, you may come forward to receive a blessing or remain seated. After receiving communion, you are welcome to remain at the altar rail for prayer as you wish before returning to your seat.
