Welcome to the Elk River Lutheran Church website! We hope to give you a glimpse of our faith community, the ministries we're involved in, and what you can expect to experience if you join us. Each week, we gather together to experience Christ's presence in our worship, community, and daily work. Here at ERLC, we really mean it when we say that all are welcome. We hope to meet you soon!
We hope to meet you at worship on Sunday mornings! Currently, we offer two different Sunday morning worship options:
Our classic, traditional worship is at 8:15 am, as well as a Worship Service with Praise Band service at 10:30 am. Worship services are typically about an hour long, and we have a social hour in between the two services. Cookies, Minnesotan "bars" (or some sort of baked confection), coffee, and juice are always served.
During the school year, this hour between services (9:30-10:30) is also when we offer Sunday School classes for Preschool-6th grade, a conversation hour for middle school students, and an adult education hour, at which we discuss and learn about a variety of topics.
What can I expect if I visit?
We are very much a "come as you are" kind of church; wear what's comfortable to you, but be sure to fill out a name tag when you come in-- we want to call each other by name!
We hope that if you decide to visit us some Sunday morning, you will enter with an open heart and mind, and will depart feeling empowered by the good news of the Gospel, a sense of community, the peace of Christ, and an eagerness to serve your neighbors.
If you'd like more information, please feel free to contact us here, or using any method listed on the "Staff & Contacts" page.
