THE VISION OF THE ELCA...
Claimed by God's grace for the sake of the world, we are a new creation through God's living word by the power of the Holy Spirit; Gathered by God's grace for the sake of the world, we will live among God's faithful people, hear God's word and share Christ's supper; Sent by God's grace for the sake of the world, we will proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed, serve all people following the example of our Lord Jesus, and strive for justice and peace in all the world.
WE HAVE FINISHED THE CALL PROCESS
Grace and Bethel have finished the call process and are pleased to announce that we have called Pastor Anne. She will start with our two-point parish on September 15th!
Until about the last 100 years shared ministry has always been included as an indispensable model for the Christian movement - faith communities sharing mission, pastors, buildings, and resources for the good of the whole church. Reclaiming this ancient model is more about the faith than it is about survival once people can let go of the idea of "my church" and embrace the truth - the church belongs to God. Since the days of Jesus, people have understood that God's call to mission includes building networks of communities with people of other faiths, local businesses, hospitals, schools, and more A shift in leadership mindset from me to we, is a faithful, ancient and renewing response to being church in a changing world.
