Participation in larger church (SEPA Synod / ELCA)

Posted: May 21, 2011 in About Pastor Matt, Vocation & Ministry

I believe that the mission God invites us into includes working together beyond the boundaries of our own congregations.  My desire to expand ministry has resulted in being open to active participation in the life of the larger church, particularly the Southeastern PA Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America:
