About Us

We are a Christ-centered community of hope and belonging for all. Everyone is welcome!

A part of the city of Windsor Heights since 1944, we are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America with 800 baptized members of all ages.  It is our God-given purpose to communicate, in words and actions, God’s love in Jesus Christ for all people. Learn more about our vision.

Our History

On February 25, 1944, fifteen adult Lutherans met at 6583 University Avenue in a hardware store, which had been converted into a chapel to officially organize Windsor Heights Lutheran Church. Read about how we got here.

Come And See

We invite you to worship with us and to participate as you wish in our fellowship, education, and service activities. There is a place for you here no matter what your family situation or lifestyle may be.

More important, we believe that you can experience here the Gospel of Jesus love for you and receive inspiration and strength to live out the Gospel in your life.

You will like our surroundings, too. The addition of the Crabtree Parish Hall and renovation of our existing building completed in 2014 gives us a bright, energy-efficient fully accessible facility that “facilitates” a wide range of worship, service, and enrichment activities.

An exquisite “all seasons” mosaic cross, designed and executed by member Dana Leahy, celebrates all of God’s creation, reminding us our mission to the world. It will surely catch your eye as you come in the main entrance.
