A Christian Community….

Colfax Lutheran Church is a Christian community that is built on the foundation of supporting everyone who enters the building and beyond. Our mission is to provide a nurturing environment for growth in faith of all people through worship, outreach, education, service and fellowship.

Worship happens in several special ways through engaging Sunday services, special musical guests, a talented senior choir, active and fun VBS , a masterly lead Praise Kids singers and an energetic Praise band, as well as a committed Youth Group.

Outreach is something that this community has pledged itself to through crafting groups and circle meetings, the annual Hidden Treasures sale, by sharing music with the local nursing home and by offering camper-ships to those who would like to experience Luther Park.

Education is a staple in this community through Sunday School lessons and music, Confirmation classes, VBS, as well as crafting groups that are willing to teach a new hobby.

Service is demonstrated by this community through Blessing Baskets, Christmas for Kids, working at the Founders Day Block Party, participating in the Community Worship service during the fair, preparing and delivering cookie tins, making and donating beautiful quilts and much appreciated school supplies to those in need, by cleaning around the Church grounds as well as at Luther Park and in the work of those employed and the many volunteers.

Fellowship is experienced in every aspect of this community before services with greeters, during services with sharing peace, after services with treats, as well as through classes, meetings, volunteering and by being an engaged member of this community.

However, none of this would be possible by one member alone, but rather through a community that is guided by the One, Jesus Christ.
