Williams Bay Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), located at the corner of Congress and Collie Streets in the village of Williams Bay.

Visitors Welcome:

All are welcome to join us in Worship and are invited to receive Holy Communion who believe that forgiveness is a free gift in the Body and Blood of Jesus. Holy Communion is offered at both services.  Click the Welcome tab for a map of the Chruch's location.

Morning Prayer Worship: The service begins with the Announcement of the Day followed by the Morning Prayer setting "Come Let Us Sing for Joy". The order starts with a Psalm verse and continues with Scripture readings, a Sermon, Prayers, Holy Communion. It ends with a Blessing and the Benediction. "Go in peace. Serve the Lord!"

Traditional Worship: Follows the Traditional ELCA Lutheran Worship using the Red hymnals. We gather, encounter God’s word, a Sermon, share a meal at the Lord’s Table, Prayers, and are sent into the world. "Go in peace. Serve the Lord!"
