5th Sunday After Pentecost

Have the children join us with a message just for them.

5th Sunday After Pentecost.

A message for everyone


We are glad you have chosen to spend a few moments visiting with us.
Please look around and discover a little bit about us.
Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church has been privileged to share the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ in this place for nearly two centuries. Our hope is that all persons will feel loved and welcomed here.

IN-PERSON WORSHIP              SUNDAY, JULY 12TH        9:30 AM


At a recent specially called meeting the Congregation Council determined we could safely re-open with in-person worship.


Please do not feel compelled to worship in-person. If you have any reservations please wait. Things will continue to improve. We will continue to offer an on-line worship opportunity. We are hoping to “live-stream” the service while we are gathered, but we are experiencing some technical challenges. If we are unable to offer it in “real time,” we will record the in-person gathering and post it to our web site (as we have been) no later than noon that same day.


In-person Worship will be in the Social Hall (this allows us to provide better spacing, and avoid stairs with handrails). The Council has established the following protocol:


  1. The Social Hall (chairs, doorknobs, etc.) will be disinfected on Sunday morning just before the service, and again after its completion.
  2. Hand sanitizer will be available at clearly identified locations.
  3. While the restrooms will be available, we ask they be utilized as little as possible.
  4. If you are not feeling well – PLEASE STAY HOME.
  5. Masks will be required of all participants.

If you are in need of pastoral care please contact Pastor Wayne Shelor at interimpastorjelc@gmail.com or 571-550-3229

We pray you will be aware of God’s loving presence with you this day.

Welcome to JELC

We hope you will join us. You may just find the church family you’ve been seeking.

“Faith is God’s work in us. It changes us and makes us to be born anew of God. This faith is a living, busy, active, mighty thing. It is impossible for it not to be doing good works incessantly. Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that believers would stake their lives on it a thousand times.”

Martin Luther (1483-1546)
