A little journey through this topsy-turvy journey of joys and sorrows and hopes and dreams with plenty of grace from God along the way.

July 24, 2024

As the Summer Olympics are set to ensue in Paris this Friday, July 26, I can’t help but think back to spring break of my senior year in high school. I started taking French in the 8 th grade, while the overwhelming majority of my class took Spanish. I guess I had to be different or something. I think one of my sisters liked the French teacher, perhaps. Maybe I appreciated the sound of that spoken language more. There may have been some appeal to the culture, the little I knew about it. Regardless, it turned out to be a life-shaping decision.

Our Ministries

Youth Ministry

We have an active and vibrant youth group here at Divinity Lutheran Church. Students who are in grades 9-12 are welcome to join our group.

Music Ministry

Divinity's music ministry features vocal and instrumental groups for all ages, and a variety of musical styles. Come and use your talents to lift beautiful praises to God!

Outreach Ministries

Divinity Lutheran Church provides support to the community in the way of community meals, donations, and volunteering at other social service and faith-based organizations.

Handmade Ministries

Some members of Divinity Lutheran use their time and talents to create handmade items such as prayer shawls, clothing and wooden baptismal boxes.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are lay caregivers who provide one-to-one Christian care to hurting people. It's not a ministry to be taken lightly, but is deeply rewarding and fills a critical need for additional ministers.

Parish Health Ministry

The mission of the Parish Health Ministry is to positively impact the lives of individuals in our congregation by supporting activities that promote the health of body, mind, and spirit.

Divinity Warmline

The Warmline is a recorded daily message to help us cope with life. We don’t always need a “hotline” geared for crisis and traumatic moments. But we all need a "warmline” somewhere to help us get in touch with ourselves, the church, and God. Goethe said, “One should, each day, try to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it is possible, speak a few reasonable words.” The Warmline helps us do just that! Each day’s offering includes an opening greeting, a devotional, poem, or scripture reading, Divinity prayer concerns, Divinity birthdays and anniversaries, and a closing prayer.


In the movie “St. Vincent” starring Bill Murray, a young boy whose parents have just divorced finds a mentor in his neighbor who is a cantankerous and loved war veteran. The movie ends with the boy honoring the man by choosing to research him for a class project on saints. “St. Vincent” highlights the concept that Lutherans consider all Christians simultaneously saint and sinner. Just as the young boy surprised the audience by naming Vincent a saint, God continually surprises us by calling each of us a saint through our baptism.

All Saints Sunday celebrates the baptized people of God, living and dead, who are the body of Christ. As November heralds the dying of the landscape, so do we remember all who have died in Christ since last All Saints Sunday.


On the Saturday and Sunday, November 3 and 4, we will briefly remember each of our saints listed below during the sermon and toll a bell as each name is read.

We will gather at the Lord’s table with the faithful of every time and place, trusting that the promises of God will be fulfilled and that all tears will be wiped away in the new Jerusalem.
