February 25, 2024 Second Sunday In Lent
In Sunday's gospel, Jesus predicts his death and calls all of his disciples, including us, to follow him. The other readings liken us to Abraham and Sarah, who are called to have faith in the promises God gave us in baptism. We meet to renew our communal covenant of grace.

Truth & Healing Movement
The ELCA's Truth & Healing Movement is an opportunity for this church to increase our understanding of our colonizing impacts on Indigenous people in the past and present. Over the next several months, there will be opportunities to learn, raise awareness and engage in other ways to impact hearts and lives across this church. We believe that the truth, and our knowing and embracing it, is the first step toward healing for all of us.
Truth & Healing Movement Introduced by Bishop Eaton on the ELCA website.
Over the next months this page will provide opportunities to learn the true history and current realities of Indigenous people. It is these truths, truths that have been ignored by most for hundreds of years, that will bring healing for both Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people.
Some of these opportunities will be calls to individual action, and some will be activities that congregations and small groups should coordinate and participate in together. All these opportunities can be easily promoted by sharing links on social media or other communication platforms.
Watch this page as well as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for additional opportunities to engage.
