Come worship at our historic church in Madison, Virginia surrounded by the peaceful countryside in Hebron valley. The congregation was formed in 1717 by a group of German colonists who lived in Fort Germanna by the Rapidan river. They later settled in the surrounding Madison area and built their church in 1740. It is the oldest Lutheran church in continuous use in the United States.
We are part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) in the Virginia Synod.
Our congregation strives to follow Christ's example by living out the great commandment "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself." We spread God's good news through acts of service and worship and through lives of Christian love and prayer.
We are a diverse group of believers--bankers, musicians, social workers, teachers, public servants, business owners, parents--united by our shared faith in a loving God.
Please join us for Sunday worship at 10 am! We are located at 899 Blankenbaker Road, Madison, VA 22727.
Come worship with us!
Our pastor is Rev. Patricia Covington
