Know each of you remain in our thoughts and prayers even as we continue to maintain our ‘social distance.’ And let your heart be calmed by our Lord Jesus who promises, “I will never leave you or forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5b)
Lord of Life is a Lutheran Church, part of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). We commit to being a Reconciling in Christ Congregation. As followers of Christ, who calls us to reconciliation and wholeness, we, the members of Lord of Life Lutheran Church, welcome all who are seeking God. Further, we welcome into membership all who have been baptized into Christ.
Believing that all are one in Christ Jesus, and aware that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons have been excluded from membership in some congregations, we welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons, as well as those who may have been excluded because of other human distinctions, such as race, economic status, or gender. We thus affirm that this welcome includes all people. We pledge to ourselves and to all others that we will strive to live as a reconciling people, in our life together and in our outreach to the world.
Here are some options for other Austin area RIC Lutheran Churches offering live streaming worship, meditations, prayers and even children’s time. Some require Facebook accounts and others do not. The links are to the pages of each church and how to reach their online streaming. Note that some also offer bulletins to go along with services.
