A people who are called to love

 At Magnolia Lutheran Church, all are welcome. First time visitors will find a gracious welcome.  No one will be asked to stand out; yet everyone is seen and received. Communion is offered  every service, every Sunday. The simple gifts of bread and wine become an abundant promise  of mercy, forgiveness, and grace. At Magnolia Lutheran Church, all are welcome at the Table.
 If you are looking for a church home, I invite you to come and worship. If you find rest and awakening for your soul, please contact  me at the church office. I would love to speak with you about the next steps in the journey of faith. If the fit is not quite right, feel free  to contact me nonetheless. Perhaps I can assist in helping you find a church home that is right for you.

 Consider this website your invitation to worship, and your invitation to participate in ministry. We believe that Christ is present in  community-and present in your daily life. We believe that God is active through the Church. Come and grow in faith!
