Summer Memorial Lutheran Church


Worship at Summer Memorial is a blend of traditional and contemporary elements. We celebrate our faith in God through a joyful and uplifting experience as we strive to grow in our ministry.

Our Worship Service is printed out in the bulletin making it extremely easy for everyone to be involved. Handicapped parking is available for easy access to an elevator entrance.

If you have trouble hearing, we have an assisted listening system in which you can control the volume on the receiver – just ask an usher for assistance.

Church council voted to begin hybrid worship with an indoor option beginning Sunday, June 13th. As of now, this will look like a service held indoors with the service broadcast via FM transmitter to all those who still wish to worship from the parking lot. Council asked the COVID-19 task force to look at what best practices look like for us at Summer as we move towards reopening for worship and other church functions at the church.

The COVID-19 task force met, and has set the following guidelines:

Masks: As a courtesy to fellow members of the congregation, continued use of masks is strongly encouraged for all participants inside the church building, particularly for singing.

Distancing: Ushers will be seating people as they arrive in a manner that maintains distance between worshippers as much as possible.

If you are having symptoms, please stay home or worship in the parking lot. Even if you are vaccinated, you can still be a carrier and not all in our congregation are vaccinated.

The Nursery will not be open during worship to avoid shared germs with toys.

The church is still closed to outside groups. Groups within the church are welcome to gather for meetings.


Tune Radio To 94.1 FM for Sunday Parking Lot Worship Service

To listen to our service, tune your radio to 94.1 FM. A copy of the current bulletin can be found by clicking on the following  Liturgy for Worship page. 

Please enter on Berry Street and follow instructions of our parking attendants. We ask you to follow best practices and to stay in your car. Out of care for the most vulnerable, please do your part and remind those with you to do the same. 


Church Offerings & Gifts

There are several options for getting offerings to the church. Offerings can be made either through the mail or dropped off in person to the church office. Phyllis is working in the office a few days a week in the afternoons – call on a Monday afternoon, and she’ll let you know when she will be at the church for you to drop it off.

You can give online via through our church's website. Click here or visit our church website and click e-givingat the top right of the website. We also plan to have a way to give at our drive-in service.
