God's Work. Our Hands: Drive-Through Food Drive

Saturday, October 16, 2021 , 10 am - 2 pm

On Saturday, October 16, from 10 - 2, we will be having a Drive-Through Food Drive to benefit the Community of Good Neighbors Food Pantry in Buffalo. This is our 'God's Work. Our Hands' project; part of ELCA's national day of service. We will be collecting non-perishable goods.

People attending church in person can start bring food in any time before the 16th and place it in the 'Food' bin. Thank you!

Sunday Worship at 9:30 am

in the sanctuary and via Zoom


Augustana follows NYS and CDC guidelines about health precautions. Please read our updated health procedures HERE

We also 'Zoom' the service weekly, live from the sanctuary. Our Zoom congregation includes people from WNY, 5 other states, and one foreign 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 HERE.

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.

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.

Sunday School

We are not offering Sunday School at this time. We are studying the safest way to have the children participate.  When we have a new plan,

we will post it here.

If you would like to receive updates, please call or email the church office.

When we resume Sunday School, we will also look for ways to have safe Family and Youth activities, and ways for kids to be involved in worship and service activities throughout the year. Click here to learn more about Sunday School and Family and Youth Activities that we have done in the past.
