Luther Memorial Lutheran Church


Blacksburg ELCA Fellowship

The Faith Communities of Luther Memorial, New Mt Zion, St Michael & Shiloh


In Christian concern we work together to prevent the spread of COVID19, 
the members of four ELCA congregations united in Holy Baptism as the Body of Christ.


Every Saturday during this time of social distancing,
we will post a digital link to a pre-recorded worship service led by our clergy,
including Scripture readings, prayers, children's message, a sermon and
links to sacred music you can access and listen to at your convenience.   


Links to recorded weekly Wednesday Lenten worship will post on Thursdays;
additional sacred resources and previous worship services may be found at the bottom of this page.


We hold you, our communities, our nation and the world in prayer,
trusting in 
the grace of our Risen Lord Jesus Christ. Peace be with you!
