How can I plan a wedding?
Congratulations on your engagement! The wedding ceremony is a time of excitement, commitment, love and emotion. It is also a sacred time of worship and reverence. We are honored that you would like to share your joy on the day of your wedding with Diamond Lake Lutheran. Please see our wedding planning page for more information.
How can I plan a baptism?
We welcome all who wish to be baptized to do so. Once a person has been baptized at Diamond Lake Lutheran, he/she becomes a member. It is not uncommon for a child to be baptized and become a member before the parents through a transfer of membership, affirmation or by baptism. Please see our baptism planning page for more information.
How can I plan a funeral?
Our prayers are with you during this time of grief and loss. Diamond Lake Lutheran pastors, staff and congregation are here to be of assistance to you during this process of funeral planning and grief. Please see our funeral planning page for more information.
What do you have for youth?
Youth Ministry is broad and vibrant at Diamond Lake. It starts in the home, is nurtured through our ministries for children, and continues with youth groups for both Middle and High schoolers. Check here for more information.
What is your confirmation program like?
Confirmation begins in 7th grade and ends in the fall of the 9th grade year. Our confirmation ministry includes all our core values: worship, learning, fellowship, and service, and helps our young people connect the promises of baptism to real life. For more information, see our confirmation page.
May I rent your facilities?
Diamond Lake Lutheran allows the rental of our facilities to the community for meetings, events and gatherings, however church events hold priority. Please see our facilities page for more information.
How do I become a member?
Worship with us for awhile. You’ll know when you are ready to join. When it’s time, sign up for a new member orientation. The purpose of the orientation is for new members to get to know each other, the pastors and other leaders, and to learn about the Vision and Values of Diamond Lake Lutheran as well as what it means to be part of the church. Potential new members are also shown opportunities to get involved at Diamond Lake.
New member orientations are held every other month on a Sunday morning beginning in October. They typically last 60- 90 minutes. Membership Sunday is the Sunday after the new member orientation. New members are installed during the 8:30 a.m. worship service. A Welcome Reception follows.
Do you have a nursery?
Yes, Diamond Lake's nursery provides a safe and caring environment for your little ones every Sunday and for other church events. It is open to children younger than kindergarten age. Visit our nursery page for more information.
We do welcome children in worship and do not expect children to be put in the nursery during services. For more on our philosophy and tips for having children in worship, click here.
Do you have Sunday School?
Yes! We have Sunday educational opportunities for all ages. For our youngest ones (ages 2 - grade 5), we have an outstanding classroom and rotational Sunday school program that touches on different learning styles. For more on our Sunday school for children, visit our Sunday School page.
Is your church handicapped accessible?
Yes. There is handicapped parking in the parking lot on the south side of the building. The set of glass doors
closest to the handicapped parking is automatic. An elevator goes to every level of the building—from the
balcony in the Sanctuary to the Sunday School rooms in the Lower Level. We also have a wheel chair.
How big is your church?
About 300 families consider Diamond Lake Lutheran their church home. Our average worship attendance is
115 per service. We have a vibrant Sunday School with more than 100 children and teens attending each Sunday.
We are large enough to offer a rich variety of ministries and excellence in music, teaching, and mission
opportunities; yet small enough to care for every member.
