Evangelical Lutheran 
Church in Canada



We are a small family congregation in a small rural/tourist community. Our members come from several communities to worship as a family. We have been lay led for over 20 years and are true pioneers in lay led church survival ministry. We step out in faith at all times knowing the Holy Spirit is guiding us. We continue to be firm in our Bible based worship. We follow the Lutheran Order of Worship and use Lutheran pulpit resources to guide us. We have an ongoing Sunday School and ELW. We continue to hold new member classes, baptisms and confirmation when needed. We enjoy family gatherings. We are very friendly and love to see visitors. We have many "summer" members whom we love dearly. We have been a safe haven for ministers who have needed church/congregational healing. In August 2008, our congregation celebrated 75 years of faithful service for our Lord and Saviour. In the midst of a declining rural population, our congregation remains stable and strong in faith. Our primary focus is preaching the Word and mission outreach.
