Current Newsletter: Rejoice Voice October 2017
We celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation this year. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe that Jesus lived and died on the Cross to be Resurrected for our sake. We believe that we are saved by grace through faith in this Jesus. We believe you cannot earn your way. We believe the resurrection changed everything. Jesus is with us today as we serve and gather together. We are not waiting for God to fix our world…God already has! We want to be part of it. Come and join us and explore how we can be the body of Christ in the world today. There are no strings attached and no secret agenda here. Jesus didn’t come to condemn the world he came to save it. (All of it!)- John 3:17.
The REJOICE Mission statement is:

“To be Love in the World.”

- 5. Praise God through worship, prayer, the Word, sacraments, and music.
- 6. Our Outreach should meet the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of others.
- 7. Encourage spiritual growth through the study of the Word.
- 8. Remain focused on and educate according to the Scripture and Lutheran doctrine.
When you invest with the Mission Investment Fund you help advance the ministry of our church, even as you save for your future. That’s because we use the money you invest to fund building and renovation loans for ELCA congregations and ministries. Not only do your investments earn you a competitive rate of return, they replace sagging church roofs, expand Sunday school classrooms, and build brand new church buildings from the ground up. Plus, MIF is well capitalized and prudently managed.
Why borrow with us? MIF specializes in church building projects, so we understand the unique needs of congregations and ministries. We provide special expertise in church building and fundraising. We offer competitive rates and terms. But the most beautiful part of borrowing with MIF is knowing that the interest you pay on your loan helps fund the loans of other ELCA congregations, so that they can share God’s love, too.
