Thank you for visiting our website!

We are a dual parish of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. In this dual parish we share in the one ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ to share the Gospel in our two unique communities. If you are visiting or passing through the Tecumseh, NE area or the Sterling, NE area, we hope that you will stop by and visit. If you have newly moved or about to move to our area, we would love it if you would consider joining us as your new church home.
