Although influenced by tradition and cultural style, the artist can bring a personal interpretation to biblical and religious themes that provides insights for our minds and hearts. By studying the iconography of the Crucifixion in paintings and sculpture, and exploring the details, scenes, figures and depictions of Christ on the Cross, we seek to find a deeper personal involvement with Christ's passion and it's meaning.

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.
