Being the Body of Christ...in a Virtual Way

 

We are living in a time like no other than any of us can remember.  For the time being, we can no longer physically gather to worship or share a meal or play games or serve our community.  BUT, that doesn't mean we can't be a community, it just means that it will look different.  To this end, I am and will continue to partner with my colleagues in the church to bring you engaging and meaningful ways to be in Christian community together.

  • Finally, there is a lot of emotional exhaustion and anxiety during this time, and this is normal.  If you'd like to talk or just need a prayer, please email or call and leave a message at 608-764-5566.

In the Peace of Christ,

Vicar Sarah

ALL ARE WELCOME


We are a community of ordinary folks joined in faith and empowered in worship to care for others by sharing Christ's love. Living in the grace of a loving Creator, motivated by the compassion of our Lord and inspired by the Spirit we seek to minister to one another, to our neighbors and to people throughout our global village.

Grounded in a rich tradition dating back to 1890, we celebrate our unique gifts, struggle with life's challenges and work diligently to keep our hearts, minds, and arms open to new people and possibilities.

 

ABOUT OUR CHURCH

“Equipping the Saints” for ministry begins in worship and, as has been the case since the congregation was founded in 1890, worship practices and traditions have changed many times during the past 126 years. Today Sunday morning worship alternates between a traditional liturgy with piano or organ accompaniment and a contemporary liturgy featuring guitar accompaniment. On Wednesday evenings  a service of Word, prayer and communion is offered using the Holden Evening Prayer Service. 

 MINISTRIES

At the heart of Deerfield Lutheran’s Mission Statement is the calling, as followers of Christ, to carry on His ministry of caring for others.  This is done through community activities and mission work both locally and globally.
