We are people seeking to live in Christ and share God’s love!
Founded in 1844, Pleasant View Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Indiana-Kentucky Synod. We are a church that exists and functions out of God’s love and grace, made clear to us through the life, death and resurrection of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, and freely available to us through the breathing of the Holy Spirit. As sisters and brothers in the body of Christ, we are invited and challenged to love God and each other daily.
Pleasant View Lutheran Church welcomes all, regardless, because God welcomes all!
Every individual is God’s creation, a beloved child of God, and God’s love and grace is freely given to ALL. Despite our differences, we believe that we can love alike even though we may not think alike. Our unity is in Christ. All of God’s children, regardless of circumstances, are welcome to the benefits and services of PVLC. There is a place for you here!
“Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.” -John 13:34

OUR CORE VALUES
From Romans 12:9-13: “Let love be genuine; sincerely prefer good over evil; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.”
