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

Sunday School

10:30 am

Sunday School is for children ages 3+ and takes place immediately after communion during the school year. 

We use a Bible-based curriculum that includes interactive age-appropriate lessons, activities and songs. Classes are about 30 minutes long.

In addition to Sunday School, we have Family and Youth activities, and many ways for kids to be involved in worship and service activities throughout the year.

Sunday Worship at 9:30 am

Communion is served weekly. 

Personal amplifiers are available for those with hearing impairments. Just ask an usher when you enter.

Pastor Kopp gives a brief children's sermon every week and then volunteers take the kids to play in a room connected to the sanctuary during the adults' sermon. 

Parents are also welcome.

Following worship, a trained prayer partner is available

to pray with you, in confidence, at the side altar.

Also after worship, we have a weekly coffee hour. It’s an informal time to meet new people and learn more about church activities.

Mission Statement

Augustana is a Christian Family in faith that prays together to know Christ and works to make Christ known throughout the community.

Upcoming Events

Sunday School is in session!

Weekly at 10:30

Sunday School is designed for children ages 3 and up.  Visitors are welcome every week. It is about 30 minutes in length. Parents usually wait for their kids in our church hall while they enjoy a cup of coffee, and then the children join them after Sunday School for some juice and treats and play time. Parents are also welcome in the classroom any time. The children learn about God through bible stories, songs and activities. Register your child and then attend the classes as often as your schedule allows.  Read more about Sunday School here.
