When we gather around God’s table each Sunday, we join people of faith around the table in sharing God’s abundant meal. This Sunday, we are also invited to receive God’s meal in the same space.
You are invited to worship with our sibling congregation, St. Paul’s Lutheran, at 2742 15th Ave S. in Minneapolis, during their 11am bilingual Spanish/English worship service this Sunday, July 29th. Stay afterward for a potluck lunch to begin conversations with neighbors and build beloved community.
As one of the first Lutheran congregations in Minneapolis, founded by immigrants over 130 years ago, St. Paul’s carries on its mission among its neighborhood’s immigrant population today. Beyond worship in both English and Spanish, St. Paul’s is known as an arts hub, offering mosaic, photography, and writing classes for children and adults, community programming for all ages, and as a safe harbor for all navigating life in the United States in these times.
During these frightening times for immigrants in our communities, our friends from St. Paul’s have expressed the hope they feel when we simply join them in their space, worship alongside them, and stand in solidarity with them. Let’s pack their sanctuary to show them our support. Can’t make it? Be sure to attend worship at ECLC at 9:30am, where we will sing one of St. Paul’s worship hymns and bless a quilt that will be gifted to St. Paul’s later that day.
If you have questions, contact Lauren at ECLC.
