Ok, disheartened ELCA Lutherans in North Idaho. There is an option for us now! A local group of Lutherans are gathering and growing in the Couer d'Alene/Post Falls area. And when we gather, apparently nothing but trouble can occur! Just kidding....it's good trouble.
We are Lutherans that won't be bullied by Synnods, bishops or fellow Lutherans that accuse us of walking away from God because we walk away from the walls that they say God is in each Sunday morning. We are not walking away from the Lord or the Word. We are walking away from the ELCA because, with each 'politically friendly' vote they make, they are muddying the Word that God left for us to learn from and to live by.
There are plenty of people, churches and t.v. pastors that twist those words to their purpose and need. Some within the ELCA Lutheran church have had enough and have decided to put their feet down firmly and walk toward the light and the Word of our Lord.
I truly think the fact that we are taking our check books and tithes with us really is what bothers them the most! But that is of course not what it's about...right?
If you are a Lutheran without a home. Please consider joining us!
There will be Sunday services at the Ivalee Hall in Post Falls at 10:00 a.m.
The outside appearance just doesn't do this building justice. When you step inside...it's just gorgeous!!
I didn't know where this was either. I had to look it up. So here are the directions and the link to google maps:
Ivalee Hall is located at 203 South Seeley Street in Post Falls, Idaho. It is just south of Seltice Road on Seeley Road which is West of Heutter Road. It is about halfway between Coeur d'Alene and Post Falls
