Welcome to Augustana!

Responding to the latest guidance from the City of Chicago and the Metropolitan Chicago Synod of the ELCA, Augustana is suspending in-person worship. We continue to worship online every Sunday morning. Virtual worship service videos and materials can be found HERE.

During these challenging times, if you need help or just want to talk, you may reach Pastor Goede at or 630-267-8029.

In the menu above, you’ll see a new section: Communing at Home. Take a look and you’ll see a message from Pastor Goede on communion practice; some resources from the ELCA, Martin Luther and Scriptures; and thoughts and notes from Augustana members, friends and staff.

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.

Looking for something that used to be in the three items below, but isn’t there now? You can find all the posts – recorded worship, vespers, special videos, pledge form, etc. – on the blog here, or use the pull down menu at the top of this page.
