We are a new congregation! Our roots in the community run deep, however.

Zion Lutheran church, founded in 1848 and Spirit of Life Lutheran, founded in 2002, joined forces by congregational vote on March 11, 2018. The two congregations had worshipped together regularly, especially for Lent and Holy Week for almost two decades. Pr. Pettit, one of our co-pastors, served as an Interim Pastor at Zion many years ago. Pr. Melissa worshipped at Spirit of Life on her first Sunday in Wilmington. Relations have been forming for a long time and new acquaintances  are budding. Come join us as we grow into a new community of faith.

(Stay tuned for additional information on the history of each of the previous congregations.)
