Family of God is a welcoming community of
faith which has carried out ministry in the Brooklyn Park Area since
1970. It is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in
America. Today's membership is a rich mix of individuals and
families, longtime and newer members, joined together to grow in faith
and serve in Christ's name. Members of all ages take part in
worship, learning, outreach, service, hospitality, friendship-building
events and programs in youth and family ministry. New member
groups form at least twice a year, but whether or not you are seeking a
church home, your visit or call is welcome.
What We Believe
We believe in the Triune God -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and the Gospel as the power of God for salvation for all who believe.
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God, inspired by God's Spirit speaking through their authors, recording and announcing God's revelation centering in Jesus Christ.
We believe the Church to be a people created by God in Christ and sustained by the Holy Spirit, called, and sent to communicate God's creative, redeeming, and sanctifying activity in the world.
Children by Grace, Extending Christ's Embrace
We are building a growing and engaged faith community committed to proclaiming the love of Christ.
Welcoming: We embrace all who come to Family of God for worship and community, striving through pleasant conversation and a hospitable environment to make all feel welcome.
Caring: Our compassion for all of God's children is evident in the care we exhibit, serving those in need with open hands and hearts.
Joyful: We gratefully seek and joyfully embrace our relationships with Jesus Christ, offering our youthful spirit, enthusiastic service, and passion for fellowship.
Selfless Service: Led by the Holy Spirit, we embark in humble servant hood, willing to do what needs to be done, without consideration for any reward, but confident in God's grace.
Intergenerational Learning: It is through God's gift of ageless fellowship tht we willingly seek to teach and learn from each other, celebrating the wide spectrum of insights and experiences of all generations.
