About the community
Shaped By Grace, Focused on Love:
What does a vibrant faith community look like? It is an inclusive family drawn together by grace. Grace is true and complete acceptance. It is you being loved by God and your faith community on your good days and when you are a complete mess. We all need grace. And, the gift of grace is that it floods our lives with the love we all yearn for. The life revealed to us in Jesus is a life joyously dedicated to loving ourselves, our neighbors, and the world. We are shaped by grace and focused on love.
Opportunities To Grow (Connect-Pray-Serve):
Opportunities to grow in our faith community are divided into three helpful groups:
Connect - Opportunities to grow in relationship with God and one another through small group activities.
Pray - Opportunities to learn fundamental spiritual disciplines (prayer, bible study, worship, service) that deepen faith.
Serve - Opportunities to love your neighbors in word and action.
Just outside the worship space next to the treats table, there are three Opportunity Boards where you can learn more.
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America:
Our congregation is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). The ELCA works with partner churches throughout the world to proclaim God's love, establish justice, and bring relief to those who suffer.
