Micah 6:8

Have you heard God’s call to do more in our community? Do you see others who are not being cherished as children of God? Are you wrestling with how to respond as a Christian to changes around you? In Micah 6:8 we read: “He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Join us as we learn together how to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly. The Micah 6:8 group helps provide resources, conversations, and next steps for you as you respond to God’s call.

It all begins with learning and growing.

On the Road Together

Joint Worship Service

Saturday | June 19 | 6:00 PM

“We won’t forget!” The four ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) churches in Aurora share a mutual passion for ministry in our community and a commitment to promoting equity and inclusion in the Aurora area. During this turning-point year, we have begun a journey of working together to dismantle racism in our community.  

St. Mark’s Lutheran, Our Savior Lutheran, New Hope Lutheran, and Faith Lutheran are preparing a special collaborative worship service for June 19 to commemorate both the martyrdom of the Emmanuel 9 and the celebration of Juneteenth, which honors the 1865 emancipation of Black people in Texas. This service will be a time of lament, confession and call to action.
