Reaching out with the love of Christ.

Dennison and Vang Lutheran is a combined ministry of two congregations with a proud history, a vibrant present, and a bright future. Our mission is to be a loving presence for our community in Christ’s name. Dennison and Vang are located about 3 miles apart from each other in Dennison, MN.

We are a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), and the Southeastern Minnesota Synod.

Songs of My Life

Dennison Community Church also invites people to Evening Prayer. We started Evening Prayer after seeing a big need for people to find peaceful moments. The last couple of years have been especially stressful for everyone. At Evening Prayer you can pause, let go, and create a peaceful oasis in your busy weeks. After Evening Prayer the burdens you carry will feel lighter.

Taize Prayer

Our doors are open, and all are welcome. We hope you will come join us on this journey.

Songs of My Life is every 3rd Sunday of the month. Taize Evening Prayer is every 3rd Wednesday of the month.

Peace be with you.

To help people get a sense of what these special worship times are like, we collaborated with Tridon Visual Media to create the videos. Please check them out!

Songs of My Life

In Songs of My Life gatherings, we build community and connection through music and stories.  Since beginning Songs of My Life at Dennison Lutheran Church, there have been many powerful, thoughtful, humorous, prayerful, and meaningful moments. 

Beginning this month Songs of My Life will be moving Wednesday evenings. On the third Wednesday of the month, come check out these unique and life-giving gatherings (and bring a friend!)

In addition, there will be a dinner served before Songs of My Life. Come and be filled in body and in spirit.

The next Songs of My Life will be on Wednesday, February 15. Dinner will be at 6:30, and Songs of My Life will begin at 7:00.
