There is a new Facebook page for members and friends of Living Waters Lutheran Church. It is a page where we can start to explore our call as children of God to racism and injustice. Please join the group and respond to three questions. There is also a chart for you to use to prayerfully think about.

Facebook group can be accessed here.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
