Recently at GA

For the last few years, a group of folks from GA, plus friends, have gone into the public square offering ashes and prayer for every single person willing to receive them.  We’ve had the most amazing experiences witnessing God at work in this holy outreach.  Ash Wednesday is Feb. 10th.  To prepare to continue to be “church in the square,” we are encouraging people to participate in this time of prayer and blessing.  Deacon John Ogren will be offering a conversation and training on Jan. 31 following the 2nd service.  Please consider volunteering on Feb. 10 as part of the team bearing witness to the love of Jesus for the sake of the world.  Even if you’re unsure you want to try this, come to the conversation with Deacon John, Camille, Lulu and Pastor Chris.

Collecting Food for the Hungry and Homeless

As the weather begins to change, life for those who are hungry and homeless becomes even more difficult. Please bring non-perishable food items and place them in the baskets at the sanctuary entrance. The food we collect will be taken to the food pantry at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lower Eastside.


Healing Services

We offer brief healing services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month. These are powerful times of anointing and prayer. They are held in the sanctuary after the 11 AM service.
