I'm New

We are so glad you are here visiting our website!  And we can't wait to meet you in person.  We are a vibrant, faith filled community that is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)*.  

"Come and see" what we have to offer in our worship services . We blend traditional, contemporary, creative and interactive worship components following the classic Gather, Word, Meal and Sending liturgy. We have communion at every service and EVERYONE is invited to Jesus' table.  We seek to provide you with fuel for this journey we are on together. Following Jesus, listening to God's call to love and serve our neighbor and being open to the Holy Spirit--worship is at the center of who we are and what we do. This is a place where everyone can belong. 

Do you have more questions about who we are, what we are passionate about, baptism, confirmation, weddings, or membership at Lord of the Hills Lutheran Church? Questions rock! We welcome you with open arms to check us out.


We are both a local congregation in the Centennial/Aurora Colorado and part of the  ELCA Lutheran community of faith.


Talk to Pastor Margot and let's get connected. Please let us know your questions and reach out to Pastor Margot . We meet folks where they are on the journey and you matter!

 We like to say around here - we don't always do it "right" (aka perfectly) we do it "real."  Join us as we let our lights shine - sharing God's love and following Jesus.

Our History

In 1995, several families from All Saints Lutheran Church in Aurora formed a working group with the Rocky Mountain Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to plan a new congregation on Smoky Hill Road. Tom Renquist was called in late 1995 to be the developing pastor. After ringing more than 6,000 doorbells, the first worship service was held in the cafeteria of Thunder Ridge Middle School with 211 people attending!

A Sunday School program was begun in April, 1996.....a mission statement was developed in June, 1996.....and on December 8, 1996, Lord of the Hills Lutheran Church was officially organized with 228 baptized members!

We began construction on our 9,800-square-foot building in July, 2002, and dedicated it to the glory of God on May 18, 2003. In spring 2009, we dedicated a parish center that provides 6,500 additional square-feet for classrooms, offices, a choir room and youth rooms.
