About Us

We are Lake Oconee Lutheran Church, a people called by the grace of God to faith in Jesus Christ, by the Holy Spirit through the Gospel. That Word of God that gives us new life with Him is at the center of our gathering, our worshipping and our serving. The Word that gathers us also sends us out into the world of people around us to proclaim Jesus Christ, Redeemer and Lord.

The window behind the altar is our EASTER SUNRISE WINDOW.
The cross hanging in front of the window is an empty cross, reminding us that Jesus rose from the dead and is alive now to be with us here and always.  Every Sunday is a celebration of Easter. The symbol on the front of the ALTAR is a combination of two Greek letters: the “chi,” which looks like our English “x,” and the “rho,” which looks like our “p.” In the Greek, these letters are the first two of “Christ.” Combined as they are, they suggest the cross. Superimposed on the cross is a heart, the reminder that God’s love for us is the reason Jesus died on the cross. God’s love for us empowers us to share his love with others.
