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.
