At Lake Oconee Lutheran Church our mission statement is:
God writes His Word on our lives building us into family of Spirit-filled servants.
Matthew 9:35-36 tells us “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness. When He saw the crowds, He had compassion for them…”. My grade school teacher would say, “Look at all the action verbs. During His ministry Jesus did not wait for people to come to Him but He went to them, cared for them, loved them.” We believe that He desires us to do the same. We believe that He has Built Us for a Purpose, built to go out into our community and care, love and serve those who are around us. Are we perfect at it? No. Below, however, you can see some of the local ways we are about the business of being Spirit-filled servants in our area.
