Welcome to Ashburn Evangelical Lutheran Church and School


Explore your faith through worship, service and learning.

This month:  Stamp Out Malaria  

Every weekend, Ashburn will learn how our gifts can end this deadly disease.

The Big Questions:  The Big Questions course continues by asking the significant questions of faith, every Sunday at 10:45am.

   Ashburn's Mission is to follow Christ and serve God's world.  

We follow Christ here through growing in diversity, caring for one another, celebrating our school, growing in accessibility, offering new worship, and serving our community.

What we believe:  

· We are saved by the grace of God alone—not by anything we do;
· Our salvation is through faith alone—a confident trust in God, who in Christ promises us forgiveness, life and salvation; and
· The Bible is the norm for faith and life—the true standard by which teachings and doctrines are to be judged.

Join us for Worship Service!

Sundays at 9:30 a.m.

Learning for all ages takes place after church at 10:45am.
