Elim Lutheran Church

About

We are grace place – welcoming and progressive!  No matter who you are or what your life is like, we’d like to help you grow in grace and make a difference in our world.

Jesus makes a difference in how we think, act, speak and live.  Through Jesus we can begin each day anew and have the strength and courage to live the change we want to see in the world.

We invite you to come and grow in grace with us.

Mission

We strive to help all people encounter the grace of Christ in such a way that they live with hope and grace.

God’s Story and our story connect at the intersection of real life.  We use the Narrative Lectionary (out of Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota) as a way for people to encounter God’s story and apply those truths to every day life.  Our goal is to help people encounter God’s love and grace in Jesus and to live their faith “out loud.”

We love Jesus and proclaim His love for us and all people.  That is our foundation, the premise for how we do ministry and live as God’s people in today’s world.  Our desire is to help people live effectively as believers in our world and culture today.

Elim’s worship service is open and progressive.  We use a key board, organ and guitar for leading worship music that is a blend of traditional and contemporary hymns and songs.

We care about all people, how others are treated.  We welcome all people regardless of color, ethnicity, sexual orientation.  We care about social justice and the environment.  We only have one planet and we want our children and future generations to continue to enjoy this world.

The name Elim comes from a stopping place early on in the journey of the Israelites as they escape from Egypt.  It was a place of seventy palms trees and twelve springs.  As such it was a place of refreshment and encouragement for regaining strength for their journey.

Come. Worship with us. Become a part of our fellowship. Together we can strive to be God’s people making a difference in our world, one person, one heart, one life at a time.
