Adults

We invite adults in all stages of life and faith formation to grow in their faith, strengthen their relationships with God and each other, and apply their faith to daily life. Recognizing different needs, we offer weekly, monthly, one-time, and even online programs!

During this time of COVID-19 and social distancing, we have new ways to stay connected to Augustana with On-Demand Worship and Daily Devotions. Pastors and staff offer daily videos designed to strengthen your faith, inspire your spirit, and share how Augustana continues to provide compassion and care in our community. Each video is posted to Augustana’s Facebook page and YouTube channel where you can watch them any time. You can also find these same videos under the New Ways to Gather/COVID-19 option from the main menu on the homepage.
