Welcome to the Augustana Lutheran Church website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and in each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Augustana Lutheran Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.
A Stroll around Town
I am going to take a stroll around Andover on Saturday, November 7 and invite you to join me. Our mission will be to visit every home. The goal is to invite all to Augustana Church and to provide information about the wonderful services we will host from Thanksgiving Eve to Epiphany.
Obviously, we hope our Andover neighbors will become better acquainted with Augustana and feel comfortable attending throughout the year. We will provide an invitation with worship times and Sunday school hours. Hand-outs will be available to take with you to give to neighbors, relatives and friends.
This stroll is for everyone, the young and the mature, families or singles. Hopefully I will not be strolling by myself. We will meet in Luther Hall at 9:00am on Saturday, November 7; coffee, juice and donuts will be provided. At 9:30, after a prayer, we will stroll and who knows, maybe will lunch together too.
Please join me on Saturday, November 7. I hope some of our youth will find time from their busy schedules to be with us too. This will be one of those times when "First, We Give of Ourselves".
God's Peace Be With You!
Steve Pressly, Lay Minister
Throughout the call process, everyone's prayers are essential.
Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide us as a congregation, the Call Committee, the Church Council, and the Northern Illinois Synod in discerning who God is calling to serve as our next pastor.
