We return to in-person worship on Sunday May 23rd at 9:30 am, when we celebrate the Festival of Pentecost! Our congregation will continue to meet in-person at 9:30 am on Sundays through the summer. In the summer, Augustana doesn’t hold Sunday School or Adult Education classes.
During the pandemic, we offered a weekly pre-recorded worship service via YouTube. Beginning on Pentecost, we will livestream the 9:30 am in-person Sunday service on Facebook for those who are homebound, far away or not yet ready to come back in person. To join us virtually, please go to our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/augustanahydepark All you need is a computer, smartphone or tablet with an internet connection to watch the livestream; you do not need to have a Facebook account. A recording of the livestream will be posted on the Augustana YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJx11DVBbs41v1UJ1EhGGyw) later in the day.
We are a congregation that is deep and wide, and we have space enough for you to live, question, and explore your faith. Like our community, our congregation is diverse in race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, age and economic status. Jesus called people into a circle of fellowship — not a hierarchy in which some are valued above others. We strive to find ways to welcome everyone into Christ’s circle and to ensure that all can find a place within it. Choose a section to learn more, or come visit us or get in touch. We hope what you find provokes you to thought and to action, and that you’ll consider nurturing your relationship with God in our worshiping community.
