We are excited to announce that our services will return to in-person worship starting June 20th. Masks and social distancing will be required.
We worship every Sunday at 10am and celebrate communion on the first and third Sundays of each month.
We are a community of faith founded on the grace of God. We believe that God the Father created and it was good, but then humanity brought corruption into the world. Rather than give up on his creation, the Father worked to bring salvation and eventually sent Jesus Christ, his Son. It is through the death and resurrection of Jesus that we are given new life and a hope for something greater. We also believe that Jesus sent his Holy Spirit into our hearts to call our faith and hope into action and empower us to love others and share with them the love of the Triune God. We believe this story of salvation is shown in the Holy Bible and summarized in the words of the Apostles’ Creed.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
If you have any question about our beliefs and practices or any general questions about the Christian faith, please reach out to Matt, our Pastor. We are a member congregation of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod.
Matt grew up in the Indianapolis area, earned his bachelor’s degree from Concordia Nebraska, and then received his Masters in Divinity from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. He began serving at First Lutheran in Culver City in the summer of 2018. Prior to his role as pastor at First Lutheran, he served at a congregation in the Minneapolis area. He and his wife, Sarah, and their two kids love being in Culver City—the weather, the food, the beach, and most of all the people are incredible. They look forward to seeing how Jesus can impact this community.
