For over 50 years the members and friends of Galilee Lutheran Church have welcomed all persons, as we strive to proclaim the message of God's grace, faith, hope and love. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ.


Galilee is a place to call home. It’s a place to get help, healing, and hope. If you have never experienced Christ or have been following Him for a lifetime, you’ve come to the right place and you’re welcome here


Our church is a thriving community of believers with a long tradition of outreach and service to its members, the community and the world.


Our congregation consists of members who make their home at the lake year round as well as those who visit seasonally
