OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Welcome in love to Tree of Life Lutheran Church, a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America! We affirm that we are a community called and empowered by God through Word and Sacrament.
We Believe that Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, sends us into the world to share God’s love through our words and actions. Though we are a community shaped by diverse traditions, we affirm one Lord, who is revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and one Faith, that brings all peoples together.
We commit ourselves to a life of worship, service, fellowship, education, and witness in this place, in the world, and to each other. To this purpose we pledge our time, talent, and treasure, and invite all persons to share in the growth of the Christian ministry of Tree of Life Lutheran Church.
The YAGM in Senegal work in one of 2 programs in Senegal: Senegalese Lutheran Development Services or the Lutheran Church of Senegal. Each program has various sites within the country. Tree of Life’s commitment to the 5 young adults listed here includes $1,000 in financial support and OUR PRAYERS for their time in the program from August 2019 to July 2020. This is a period of definitely living outside their comfort zone, of learning possibly several new languages, and of living in a vastly different culture, but also of receiving blessed grace from their new friends and of growing in faith! We pray for each of them by name in our services each weekend, but PLEASE consider including them in your personal prayers as well. Read the latest newsletter here.
