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.
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.
ELCA World Hunger Drive
Augustana annually collects donations for the ELCA World Hunger fund, which assists people in both the United States and around the world. We participate in 'God's Global Barnyard,' which allows you to select farm animals and other food-related necessities, donate them in the name of your friends and family, and get acknowledgement cards to send them. Visit or contact the church for more information!

This new group is for those who are on a cancer journey or who have beat cancer and would like to help give hope to others. It will include a bible verse to reflect on, sharing as individuals feel comfortable, prayers for individual needs, supportive encouragement, and perhaps laughter to lighten hearts. The group will take place from 3 - 4 pm at Augustana on the main level (we have a chair lift for the 3 steps in our entryway), and on Zoom, on the 4th Tuesday of every month, beginning Nov. 23. All participants must wear masks.
