Welcome To ALC!

American Lutheran Church is a North American Lutheran Church (NALC).

  • Congregationally Focused - We strive to be a church body that is organized to facilitate the ministries of local congregations in a posture of servanthood and a spirit of partnership, through the provision of resources, connections and information.
  • Traditionally Grounded - We affirm the ecumenical creeds and the faithful witness of the Church across time and space. We endorse the form and practices of the universal Church that are consistent with Scripture, particularly the office of the ministry and the tradition of worship under Word and Sacrament. We seek dialogue and fellowship with other Lutheran churches and with faithful Christians of other confessions.
  • Mission Driven - We believe that the mission of the Church is to preach the Gospel and to make disciples for Christ. We believe that making disciples — in our congregations, in our communities and nations, and around the world — must be a priority of the Church in the present age.
  • Christ Centered - We confess the apostolic faith in Jesus Christ according to the Holy Scriptures. We affirm the authority of the Scriptures as the authoritative source and norm, “according to which all doctrines should and must be judged” (Formula of Concord). We accept the ecumenical creeds and the Lutheran Confessions as true witnesses to the Word of God.

  • Christianity is not based upon works "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves,it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast." (Ephesians2:8-9) Mankind was created in the image of God “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.  God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:26, 27)

  • Pastor Tim

    Grace and peace to all from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

     

    I’m Pr Tim Hubert, called by our God and by the leadership of this congregation to help you call a new pastor. As your Interim Pastor, I will carry on the ministry begun by the many good pastors of the past and help prepare you to call your next pastor and friend.

     

    Let me tell you a little about myself. I am the son of a pastor, born and raised in the Augustana Synod. In 1982 I was ordained into the holy order of ministry in the Red River Valley Synod, Lutheran Church in America. I have served five regular, full time calls in Carthage, South Dakota, St Paul, Mason City, Iowa, Grace, Westchester, Illinois, St. Matthew, Itasca, Illinois and St. John, Royal, IL.

     

    I took early retirement after serving Royal in order to serve as an interim pastor where needed. I have served now five full time interim ministries at First, Decatur, Peace, Steeleville, St Paul, Altamont, Trinity, Shumway and American, Rantoul.

     

    In total I have served 34 years of ordained ministry and 2 years as a lay pastor, for a total of 36 years of pastoral ministry.

    I am married for 41 years to my wife, Royce and we have three children and two (at the moment) grandchildren. Sarah is our oldest. She and her husband Jimmy are both handicapped and live is a nursing facility in Springfield, Illinois. She is our evangelist there!

     

    Daniel is married to Amy and they have Katie and Emily who are about 1 ½ years old. They just moved to Wisconsin, where Daniel is the new high school band director at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School in Jackson, Wisconsin.

     

    Benjamin in our youngest. He is turning 31 this year and looking for employment in his field which is academic libraries.

     

    What can you fairly expect from me? I will, by the Grace of our Lord, live out the best I can the four core values of the North American Lutheran Church: Christ Centered, Mission Driven, Traditionally Grounded and Congregationally Centered. I will love you as best I can and be your friend as we look together for a new pastor.

     

  • This Church Worships The Lord God Of All Creation “Though the fig tree should not blossom and there be no fruit on the vines, though the yield of the olive should fail and the fields produce no food, though the flock should be cut off from the fold and there be no cattle in the stalls, yet I will exult in the Lord, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.” (Habakkuk 3:17, 18) “Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.” (Colossians 3:14-17) We Believe In One God, Creator Of All Things The Lord our God is One, Father, Son and Holy Spirit in accordance with the three Eccumenical Creeds. “There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” (Ephesians 4:4-6)
