Welcome!

Augustana is an inviting and dynamic church
that welcomes all in Christ's name.

Sunday Worship at 9:30 am
in the sanctuary and via Zoom

Augustana follows NYS and CDC guidelines about health precautions. Masks are now optional in the church. 

We also 'Zoom' the service weekly, live from the sanctuary. Our Zoom congregation includes people from WNY, 5 other states, and another country! If you have friends or relatives who live out of town, now you can worship with them - you can both participate from your homes, or one person can worship in the sanctuary and the other can participate by Zoom. Learn about Zoom.

Our 'Cry Room' has re-opened. Children of all ages are also welcome to stay in the sanctuary throughout the service. We have resumed our Coffee Hours after the service on a limited basis. Contact the church office for the schedule.

Call or email the church office to begin receiving worship materials, if you would like Pastor Fred to pray for you or for a loved one, or if you have any questions.
