 Hi Friends, neighbors, community members, partners in ministry,

     You are invited to come to celebrate Pastor Chris' time at Gustavus Adolphus (GA) on his last Sunday, January 5th, 2020. We want to make sure we tell everyone, our building partners, our community partners, and our friends and neighbors that they are invited and encouraged to attend. All are welcome. Pastor Chris has meant so much to us and we know so much to everyone that has known him. He has had a wide-ranging impact on this community and we view all of you as partners in ministry so please come and join us on his final Sunday for the worship service and a reception following the service. 

     He is heading off to continue his work and ministry across the region and so our time with Pastor Chris is ending. That said, we as a congregation will continue to work with all our partners in ministry in the months and years to come. We look forward to continuing our work together.  

     Logistics: We will be meeting for worship at the church (155 E 22nd Street) on Sunday, January 5th, 2020 at 11 am like usual in the sanctuary (up the stairs if you come in the front doors). We expect the service will be longer than usual due to the number of people and the formal process by which we release Pastor Chris from his call. You are also invited to attend the reception in the fellowship hall after the service. 

     We hope to see you all there. If you have any questions or would like to contribute to a gift for Pastor Chris or Linda then please feel free to reach out to me.

     Blessings, Stephen Bennett, Church Council President

  • Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30

    27All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

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.
