I'm New Here
Once inside the narthex (lobby), the sanctuary (church worship space) is easily accessible. Men’s and women’s restroom facilities are available in the narthex on the sanctuary level.
A children’s nursery is available on the sanctuary level. The nursery is fully stocked with toys and books and includes a “pint-sized” restroom as well as a private room for nursing mothers. For their safety TLO asks children remain under supervision of parents while in the facility.
The Lord’s Supper is a gift of God’s grace, where we receive the true body and blood of Christ in the bread and wine. This meal is also a testimony of our common faith. Guests who have not confirmed their faith in a congregation of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod are asked to speak with a pastor prior to communing.

TLO offers special services on Thanksgiving Eve, Thanksgiving Day; Christmas Eve, Christmas Day; during Holy Week and Easter Sunrise. During Advent and Lent, midweek worship services are held on Wednesdays at 6:30pm. Soup suppers often precede these services at 5:30pm.

A great church outfit is one that makes you feel comfortable in the presence of the Lord. TLO Church asks our guests wear what helps them to feel prepared to worship. Modest, neat, clean attire ranging from business to causual is appropriate in most cases.
