Reformation Lutheran Church welcomes all who come through our doors.We are a friendly congregation, easy to find and have been here for over fifty years!
We serve the Lord in many ways: once a month a meal is prepared by the men of our congregation, for residents of the Ronald McDonald House; we collect used medicine bottles and take them to Cincinnati to "Matthew 25 Ministries" who send them to third world countries; we collect re-useable food containers which we give to a church on the west side who feed the hungry on a daily basis; we adopt families at Christmas time and provide gifts, food and cleaning supplies; we also have an Easter Egg Hunt which is open to the community.
Both adult and children's Sunday School is offered. We also encourage lay leadership. In 2013 we had a Christmas dinner theater for the community. In May we will have our annual yard sale which is sponsored by the women of the congregation. Come and worship the Lord with us and rejoice in the Lord Always!
"The grace of the Lord, Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all."
2 Corinthians 13:14
