Welcome to the Sierra Evangelical Lutheran Church website. We trust that this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of Christian believers and lovers of the Word of God. Sierra Lutheran has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for worship on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

Holy Week & Easter Services:
Maundy Thursday Worship – April 2nd, 6:30 pm
Enter the Upper Room where Jesus teaches his disciples what it means to love one another as He has loved us. Share in the absolution of sins and conclusion of Lent through the forgiveness and renewal received in the Eucharist/Holy Communion. Silently reflect on the journey to Gethsemane, Pilate’s court, and the cross as the altar is stripped in gathering darkness. Chancel Choir presents a special anthem, “An Invitation to Grace,” by Joseph Martin (Child Care provided.)
Good Friday Worship – April 3rd, Noon and 6:30 pm
Reflect on the willingness of Christ to horribly suffer and die out of His great love for us and all creation. The 12:00 pm service will lead us through eight Stations of the Cross, with reflection time through song, silence and prayer. The 6:30 pm service will feature a “tenebrae”–type service of gathering darkness as the Passion of St. John is dramatically read. The Chancel Choir presents the beautiful, “Ah, Holy Jesus/O Love Divine” anthem by Joseph Martin. (No Communion; Child Care provided at 6:30 pm service only)
Easter Saturday Prayer Vigil
This year, instead of the Easter Vigil worship and Communion service, we are inviting folks to sign up to commit to pray in a specific time slot from 6 pm Saturday to 6 am Sunday. The sanctuary will be open for that prayer time from 6-9 pm, graciously hosted by our Altar Guild. Pray at home the other hours. Sign up in the narthex on Sundays. Prayer lists and devotional tools will be made available in the sanctuary.
Resurrection Sunday – April 5th
City-Wide Easter Sunrise Worship Service – 6:00 am – Veteran’s Park Pavilion
Join hundreds of other worshippers from the area as we greet the Son-rise with praise music led by TJ Rownan and area church musicians, preaching by Rev. Jorge Villalvazo, of Centro Cristiano Shiloh church, assisted by various community pastors and youth. It’s always such an uplifting way to start Easter! Offerings will go towards final costs of the new Salvation Army building expansion. Free donuts and coffee served, provided by the St. Andrew R.C. Knights of Columbus. BRING A LAWN CHAIR AND DRESS WARMLY!
7:30- 8:30 am Easter Breakfast and Egg Hunt
Enjoy warm fellowship and a delicious full breakfast in the Fellowship Hall graciously prepared and served by our Church Council and Fellowship Team. Free will donations accepted. Children join in our traditional Easter Egg Hunt at 8:30 am, led by our Christian Education team.
9:00 and 10:30 am Easter Worship Services
Celebrate with joy our Lord’s resurrection in worship featuring a special anthem, “Worthy Is the Lamb” by our Chancel Choir, trumpet, fun Children’s Time, and Holy Communion. (Child Care provided.)
