    Welcome to the Lutheran Church of the Master

    We are a small church that believes God loves this city.

    We are energized by the many community partnerships that have popped up on Main Street.  It is fun to see people employing their passion and wisdom for the benefit of our community.  Many people come through the doors of our building in a given week for choir practice, addiction support groups, quilting ministry, acting lessons, music recitals, school assemblies and other community events.  We see these activities as gifts of God and we celebrate the way that they enrich the lives of many.  

    The central ministry of Lutheran Church of the Master is to gather around the Word of God on Sunday morning.  We meet together to receive the promises of forgiveness and renewal, we hear ancient scriptures brought to life, we commit our lives to serving others and we partake in a communion with God and neighbor as we gather at Christ's table.  All of this in one hour! and it's open for all.  

    Peruse our website, check out our zoom broadcast (it's not fancy), attend a service, send an email.  We pray that you are encouraged as you consider the awe and mystery of a God that loves you.

    Pastor Tim Wray

    Kuriakos "Above & Beyond"

    The dream of a Lutheran camp on the shores of Sylvan Lake began nearly a century ago for just $1. Now it is a thriving outdoor ministry serving people of all ages.

    Kuriakos now have an opportunity to add land that has for years divided their property and limited how they can enhance the ministry. There is a campaign to raise funds to purchase this land and are asking  for our help.  For additional details check this LINK.  The site will share new information often so chek it often.
