You never know who is a Lutheran just like you, please click on the above link and smile.


Hello, welcome, and thanks for stopping by our South Miami Lutheran Church web site.  Our prayer is that this site will be a reflection of our wonderful congregation and a place you can always find yourself. 

Over the summer on this website you will find updated information on everything about us -- our ministries, activities, and more -- as well as articles, pictures, and the weekly readings. We hope you enjoy everything it has to offer you.   

For those of you who do not know us, we have a beautiful stained glass window depicting Jesus with open arms. This reflects our church whose vision / goal / purpose is new people coming to it because they want to know Jesus Christ and members coming because they want to continue growing in their faith and to share it with others. Just like Jesus, we welcome you with open arms so we hope you come visit us soon!

We at SMLC are committed to being part of a tight-knit community of people who support and celebrate one another. The people of South Miami Lutheran Church along with pastor, Rev.James Dunham, the Church Council and Committees welcome all people to share in its worship and ministry in proclaiming God’s love. Through Jesus Christ we reach out to each other, our community and our world.

If you live in town, stop by and see us.  If you do not live in Miami but are visiting, we hope you will stop by and visit with us. We’d love to have you.

If we can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact us at (305-665-2562) or  by sending e-mail to Mary at the office at

Remember whether you are a member or not, you are always welcome at South Miami Lutheran Church.

God Bless You!
