ABOUT LIFE JOURNEY LUTHERAN CHURCH
Welcome to our website and thanks for checking us out. My name is Erik Gravrock and I'm the Interim Pastor here at Life Journey. This is a wonderful community of faith with a heart for Jesus and for Southwest Washington. It is truly a privilege for me to serve this congregation during this time of transition. If your searching through this site prompts you to check us out either through the livestream and/or in person, we'd love to have you join us for worship. Our services are at 10:15am on Sunday.
Hear at Life Journey, our mission is "to be disciples who build disciples who live lives of significance and service for Jesus Christ". In His Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), Jesus gave His Church clear marching orders, which make up the opening words of our mission statement. As such, we want to be faithful to what He commissioned us to do. In so doing, our lives will be given significance as we commit them to service God.
So how do we go about being disciples who make more disciples? That's the challenge that each church faces, especially in this post-Covid context. Thankfully, our calling remains the same as it has always been, which means that the Holy Spirit's power and provision remain the same. When it comes to the first objective, we see discipleship as a lifelong pursuit. The ways in which we mature as disciples are by spending time in God's Word, committing to regular engagement in prayer, and gathering together as the Body of Christ for worship and fellowship. When we devote ourselves to these practices, the second objective will be the natural outflow, as we will passionately pursue our calling to walk alongside others as they too seek to follow Jesus.
So wherever you are on your life journey, whether you've been following Jesus all your life, are wrestling with what that might look like for you, or even if you've never given God much thought, we invite you to join us as we all journey together through this life.
In His Name,
Pastor Erik Gravrock
