Today we celebrate the new initiative that comes to us via the churchwide expression of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

FUTURE CHURCH
Being church together in new ways

It’s about connecting all the expressions of our church with all the organizations, schools, seminaries and agencies that make us who we are in order “to activate the entire church so that more people may know the way of Jesus and discover community, justice and love.”

More to follow on the innovations to live out our common vocation
“To tell the old, old story in new ways”

You can log in at ELCA.org and click on “Future Church” to view a video conference that outlines the priorities.

Pray that the Spirit will guide, inspire and shape the Future Church structure being implemented in the churchwide organization to renew our sense of purpose and activate the entire church so that more people may know the way of Jesus and discover community, justice and love.
