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 optional in the church. 

We also 'Zoom' the service weekly, live from the sanctuary. Our Zoom congregation includes people from WNY and cities outside New York State. 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.

We have a 'Cry Room' right behind the sanctuary where parents can take their children and still hear and see the service. Children of all ages are also welcome to stay in the sanctuary throughout the service. We have coffee hour every week after the service and all are invited.

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.
