Memorial Lutheran Church was born a mission church in December 1924 in downtown St. Augustine, with just a handful of charter members.  The church moved to the new facility in 1977, and now has over 500 baptized members.  We are a parish of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) and the Florida-Bahamas Synod.

You are invited to visit with us and consider this your new church home.  We are a body of believers who extend a warm welcome for you to come and worship the Lord with us.

Worship Services with Holy Communion are celebrated every Sunday.  The traditional worship service is at 8:00am and the contemporary service with children’s sermon is at 10:30am. 

Sunday School is offered for all ages September through May at 9:15am.  Vacation Bible School is held each summer.

Wednesdays Together is held weekly from September through May and includes a light meal, confirmation classes, choir rehearsal and Bible study.

Other Ministries include Youth Group, Lutheran Men in Mission, Ladies Night Out, Stephen Ministries, Sonshiners Senior Group, Women and Co-ed Bible Studies, Traditional and Contemporary Choirs and Handbell Choir.
