Connect With The Community

With the Community - Cana Lutheran Church - connectwcommunity1Loving God, Loving Others, and Serving Our Community

We seek to freely give of ourselves in service to others in ways that demonstrate God’s love. When we are able to put others before ourselves, we share by example the wonderful power of love and grace that God has given through Jesus Christ.


Cana has a long history of sharing its space with the Berkley community.

Berkley is a neighborhood overflowing with young children. Through our congregation’s partnership with the Berkley Moms Club we are transforming our former nursery into a high-quality indoor play space. “The Backyard Playroom” cultivates a safe space for children five and under to play, learn, and thrive. It is a place for parents/grandparents to connect and relax, and is our gift to the young families who reside in Berkley, Huntington Woods, Oak Park, and Royal Oak.
