In the fall of 2019, the ELCA voted to become a sanctuary denomination. Broadly, this means that the ELCA publicly declared that walking with immigrants and refugees is a matter of faith. We continue our five-week series on Sanctuary this Sunday with a bible study with Mark Gravrock, which will be posted on our website under the Faith Formation tab.
