About Us

Our Mission

Our Mission: We are a family of God faithfully and joyfully sharing Christ's love.

Our Guiding Principles

As God forgives us and blesses us, we:

  • forgive others, seeking to help through prayer and a giving Spirit.
  • joyfully open our hearts to the care and needs of others.
  • love others because God first loves us.
  • help and bless others with our time and resources because God blesses us.
  • are grounded in Bible Study, worship, and the sharing of Sacraments.
  • We have many ministries that are active within our congregation such as the Knitwits and Hookers (knitting and crocheting), Blanketeers, Christian Education, providing funeral dinners, altar guild, fellowship, property, worship and music, social ministry, food pantry, endowment, and energy conservation.

    Our Knitwits and Hookers provides hats, scarves and other handmade items to the Elkhart County Women's Shelter, South Bend Center for the Homeless, Hannah's House, Grace Lutheran Clothes Closet, and Ronald McDonald Family Room.

    The WOW (Women of Worth) group gives blankets to the Elkhart County Women's Shelter, the Disabled American Veterans, Child and Parent Services, BABs (small children), Salvation Army, and newborns of the congregation.

    Each year we have a Warmth for Winter Coat Drive which collects new and gently used coats to be given to The Window in Goshen.

    Our food pantry is open each Thursday morning from 9am-11am.

    Along with these ministries that give back to the community, we have worked with Mosaic of Northern Indiana and Soup of Success (Church Community Services) to parnter in serving our community.

    Each fall, as school begins, we host Rally Day, a community picnic with games and fun for the whole family!
