Established in 1997, Risen Lord Lutheran Church has always been about community more than a building. Over the years we created worship space in two different community center buildings, a theater, and a storefront. In 2017, the people of St Laurence Episcopal Church invited Risen Lord Lutheran Church to share building space with them. Since then both congregations have been energized by building relationships, sharing ministries, and occasionally worshiping together, all while maintaining our unique Lutheran and Episcopal identities.

From the beginning, Risen Lord Lutheran Church has provided a spiritual home and welcoming community for people all along the Hwy 285 corridor, from Bailey to Morrison and even ‘down the hill’. We are connected to the community through Interfaith Food Pantry, Susannah’s Hope (a coat ministry), Mountain Resource Center, and PeaceWorks.

We gather for worship at 9:00 am on Sundays.

Holy Communion is always a part of our worship.

You will find us on Barkley Road, just off Hwy 285, in Conifer.
