Welcome from the Pastors'

We wish to personally welcome you to the joy of life here at The Lutheran Church of the Incarnate Word. Here is a community of people who take delight in worshiping, learning, reaching out and being in fellowship together.  

Determination, visionary thinking and great expressions of faithfulness have given shape to what is today a wonderfully dynamic congregation. Our life together in Christ is grounded in inspiring worship incorporating a vibrant ministry of sacred music and provocative preaching, and a lifelong exploration of the Christian faith.

We are a community committed to seek ways of stepping onto the path of personal spiritual renewal and discipleship rooted in peace, justice and compassion. Together we serve this city by loving God and loving our neighbor.

We invite you to be a part of this stimulating journey. Seven days a week, our facility is humming with activity. If you are looking for a place to center your spiritual life, and a people with whom you can make a difference in the world, come and explore Incarnate Word: A servant church letting its light so shine before others. Where will God’s Spirit of faith, hope and love lead us? Come join us on the journey and let us find out together.

Pastors Doug and Joanne
