A Caring Congregation

Passing on Faith

Making a Difference

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

Morning Star Lutheran Church


Dear MSLC Family and Community:


Out of an abundance of caution and love for our community, Morning Star Lutheran Church will NOT have Sunday worship services or Faith Formation through August.  This date will change as circumstances dictate. We will have a livestream Service of the Word each Sunday at 8:30 AM that will then be posted on our website and Facebook page for people to watch later.

Congregational programing is cancelled through August. This date will change as circumstances dictate. 

Your staff will be working to maintain good communication with the congregation via the Beacon, Facebook and email.

In this season of uncertainty, let us each take on the discipleship of Being Connected - if not in person, then through the phone, emails, notes, cards, etc.

God bless us all with patience and hope as we walk this road, if not side by side, in love for one another.

8:30 AM : Join us on our Facebook Page or through the Watch Now button for a
Service of the Word 


"Who will separate us from the love of Christ? ... No, in all these things we are more than conquerers through him who loved us."

Romans 9:35a, 37

A Caring Congregation

We are a caring congregation that belongs to the Evangelical Lutheran  Church of America. Please read more about the ways we seek to pass on faith and make a difference - most often beyond our walls.


Currently, we are streaming our Sunday Service at 8:30 AM on our Facebook and website.  However, it is available all week so feel free to join in whenever you like. 


Please see our resource on how we can continue to be an ally to our community partners during these difficult times.
