Consider yourself officially invited: the best way to get to know a church community is in worship on a Sunday! Click here for our current worship page (times, livestream, etc.).
There's a place for you here: in worship, serving together, learning and growing faith, sharing as community. We're a small but vibrant community, enriched by the ever-changing neighborhood and newcomers - maybe you!
If you’re considering visiting or checking out churches online, I know you’re looking for something real. Come visit and see if GLC is a fit for you. We’re a relatively small community with a big open mind and a real opportunity for serving, sharing, and connecting with others. GLC has been on this corner of Wisconsin and Volta for almost 250 years and has a rich history. In each era we’ve seen how God leads us to stay rooted in and yet grow and adapt to authentically reflect a living faith. This is truly an incredible congregation – people with diverse stories and backgrounds; we come with our doubts, our real lives, and our perspectives, to share in community here. Our "we" includes people who are single, families with kids, young adults, retirees, LGBTQIA+, and folks new to the US, Lutheranism, or Christianity.
There’s a place for you here. But as Levar Burton said on Reading Rainbow, “don’t take my word for it!” Come to worship. Check out GLC. See where God is calling you – ask questions, challenge us, and consider how you might be a part of what God is doing in this community. I’ll even buy you a cup of coffee/wine/beer to talk about it. Come and see!
