ALL ARE WELCOME at Galilean.
We believe you'll find Galilean to be a warm, caring congregation of God's people committed to Biblical, Christ-centered ministry within the Lutheran tradition. We hope you'll join with us as we seek to grow in the love and grace of Jesus.
Our worship services are easy to follow and they last about an hour.
We celebrate Holy Communion each Sunday, and we welcome all who believe that Jesus Christ is present in this Sacrament and that forgiveness of sins is given through this gift of grace. The ushers will direct you, and your children are welcome to accompany you to receive a blessing.
Guests are never singled out or embarrassed. The pastor will likely ask if there's anyone attending for the first time, because we want you to feel welcome. Introduce yourself if willing, it’s especially fun when we have visitors from other places. Casual attire, even sweatpants or shorts you wear to the beach is fine.
Everyone who comes to worship with us are welcome to participate in the full life of this church. Members are encouraged to support our church financially. Currently, we are not passing an offering plate due to Covid, instead there is a drop box in the Narthex where offerings may be placed.

Thank you all for your financial support of our ministry together.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
