Aardahl Lutheran Church - Today's Message

“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit gives them. There are different ways of serving, but the same Lord is served.”
Corinthians 12:4

Martin Luther spoke much of the “priesthood of all believers” and by virtue of our baptism we are all ministers. We each come with different gifts to share with our community of faith. We are called to use these gifts as we live out our life of faith and the mission of the church. This congregation is full of people doing ministry in the name of Jesus Christ. We are a congregation that is moving into the future looking for new ways to share God’s love and promise with the community and the world that surrounds us. We give thanks to God for the gifts of each member of our congregation and the many ways these gifts are shared.

At Aardahl, the emphasis is on unconditional love and acceptance for members of the congregation and for members of our neighboring community. Visit us and discover boundless opportunities for personal and spiritual growth along with meaningful ways to make a real difference in your community. You’ll be greeted with genuine warmth and embraced by a supportive extended family.

Come and share our joy!
