"Rejoicing in Christ, Empowered to Serve."
Worship is the center of our common life. Worship moves us to service. That service is supported by fellowship and community. Worship + Service + Community. We invite you to take part in these with us.
We are a member congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, committed to hospitality, justice, inclusivity, mercy and joy in the name of Christ.
We serve the West Side of the Salt Lake Valley. Our congregation came into being in 1989 when St. Paul and Atonement Lutheran churches merged.

(C): SOCIAL MEDIA SUNDAY
SEPTEMBER 25, 2016 – NINETEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
Often, worshippers are asked to put away their devices during worship service, but you won’t hear that on Social Media Sunday. Why? Because Jesus said so.
Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Mark 16:15
With over 2.3 billion users of social media* around the globe and 1 million new social mobile users added each day*, going into the world to share good news requires using new tools to be where people are.
Social Media Sunday is the day set aside for Christians everywhere to use digital devices intentionally to share their life of faith with the world. Started at Trinity Episcopal Church in Tariffville, Connecticut in 2013, Social Media Sunday has grown over the years since to include people of faith everywhere. In 2015, thousands of people participated by sharing status updates, check-ins, photos, videos, and links on their social media accounts. The date for Social Media Sunday has been permanently set for the last Sunday in September.
