Recently at GA

For over 150 years our fellowship at Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church has demonstrated its witness to the gospel and has served countless numbers of parishioners in dynamic and innovative ways.

Looking to the future, we are determined to lay the foundation so that initiatives, such as our Open Arms Preschool Program, continue to thrive. Insuring our congregation’s healthy fiscal sustainability is a major priority. As you know, early in the new year we will be launching an ambitious major gifts fundraising campaign, under the theme, “Shine God’s Light – Together As One.”

Several GA members have been working diligently to plan, prepare and present the campaign. Thanks to: Anthony Geraci, Bob Tobing, Jeanne Matson, Tenu Avafia, Deacon Lulu Paolini, Deacon John Ogren, Abbie Riekena, Nic Handahl, Zach Dean, Pastor Elise Brown, and Pastor Chris.

On Sunday, we are starting our Capital Campaign - "Shining God's Light, Together as One." During this special time in the life of our Church, we have a chance to explore more deeply what ways GA fits into our lives, and what it means to prepare for a stable future as we grow in richness of community and ministry.  We will hear several devotions and testimonies from GA worshipers each Sunday.  There will be special music offered.  A unique newsletter will be distributed each week called "The Fabric of GA." It will feature a number of GA folks.  Special materials about the campaign will be given out in the next few weeks.  Our campaign will lead us to Commitment Sunday on Feb. 26th.

    7Then Esther said, "This is my petition and request: 8If I have won the king's favor, and if it pleases the king to grant my petition and fulfill my request, let the king and Haman come tomorrow to the banquet that I will prepare for them, and then I will do as the king has said."

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.
