The current church building is the fourth and was completed at our bicentennial in 1971.
We are blessed with a worship-centric sanctuary complemented by a Casavant pipe organ.
An extensive education building was completed in 1958 and houses the fellowship hall, classrooms, and church office.
Worship is liturgical and traditional, and Holy Communion is celebrated. Our faith is found in the Word of God expressed and interpreted through the three historic creeds of the Church and the Lutheran Confessions. Please come and join us as we grow in faith and grace through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Love thy neighbor with a match that doubles this Christmas
Christmas is a time for celebrating miracles...and remembering the many children and families praying for one right now.
Children like Kimberly.
In the remote village in Guatemala where 3-year-old Kimberly lives, families are growing desperate. Inflation has raised the price of bread and water to levels almost no one can afford. Kimberly's mother Irma has to work hard to provide clean drinking water for her children. She tries to provide the right food, but it can be a struggle because of harsh conditions and her remote location. She prays her children will grow up healthy. Will her prayers go unanswered?
It’s the children who suffer the most. And they are running out of time.
Make this Christmas one that a child like Kimberly will remember — by helping to ensure they have enough food to eat, clean water to drink and the hope for a brand-new future. And because of a group of generous donors and friends of faith, any gift you make until December 25 will double, meaning your love will have twice the impact.
So many families around the world are suffering. Effects of the war in Ukraine threaten to push many people over the brink. We’re on the cusp of a hunger crisis of unprecedented scope.
So many children are going to bed hungry — and waking up with nothing to eat.
Many children in remote regions won’t even survive to the age of 5.
Your gift and your love can make a lifesaving difference — especially when it’s doubled.
Your gift will MULTIPLY 2X to save children’s lives by providing:
Any gift you make today will be matched, dollar for dollar, to reach more children suffering right now. But hurry, the Christmas Match ends December 25.

There is just nothing like the sound of a pipe organ. The music in worship from these pipes awakens our spirit.
Pillow cases were hand made with love and delivered to a church in rural Hawaii.

The Christmas tree is decorated with Chrismons.
History of the Chrismon Tree
The Chrismon tree began as an offering to God in the Lutheran Church of the Ascension, 295 West Main Street, in Danville, Virginia, in 1957. God blessed the offering, and it has become a symbol of praise and thanksgiving to Him. Mrs. Harry W. Spencer, the originator of the Chrismons, said, “I realized Christmas was the birthday of the Christ Child. Let us honor the Child, the Person He is.” After many weeks of research, Mrs. Spencer came across some drawings of designs called Chrismons. “Chrismon” (Kriz’mon) is a combination of parts of two words: CHRISt and MONogram. A Chrismon is just that, a monogram of Christ. The sketches found were copies of Chrismons designed and carved or drawn by some of the earliest Christians. The monograms were found in many places – some on jewelry and utensils, others on doors or in catacombs or in buildings. Early Christians used them to identify themselves to one another, to designate meeting places of the church, and sometimes, to show unbelievers where they stood. The designs were quite beautiful and would make lovely tree decorations. Mrs. Spencer said, “It occurred to me that by using these early symbols of our faith to decorate the tree, we would bring out distinctly the real reason we celebrate this day of the year. I hoped such a tree would not only be worthy of being placed in the Lord’s house, but would also contribute to the spirit of worship in this holy seasons.” All Chrismon are made in a combination of white and gold. White, the liturgical color for Christmas, refers to our Lord’s purity and perfection; the gold, to His majesty and glory. The evergreen tree, which symbolizes the eternal life which our Savior has won for us, is background for the tiny white lights. May these lights lead us to Christ— the Light of the world. May the symbols placed on our tree continually remind you of God’s greatest gift to us all, Jesus Christ.
We have been celebrating the risen Christ for over 250 years in Liberty, NC
