We have seen the devastating images of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria struck the island.  Millions of our sisters and brothers are suffering (as in Dominica and other places as well).  Pastor Chris has a colleague living and serving in Dorado, just west of San Juan.  They are communicating with each other and beginning to plan to have a group of GA volunteers head to Puerto Rico to help with rebuilding in early 2018.  More details will follow.  In the meantime we all can provide immediate assistance: with financial contributions made through ELCA Disaster Response (100% of donations go to the victims) -

    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.
