Welcome to Circle of Faith Parish


Circle of Faith Parish and our partner congregation Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, along with two other ministries, were featured in the ELCA’s 2014 video “We Are Church Together”, narrated by Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton. The video highlights a few of many special areas of outreach the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is doing in Christ’s name through it’s congregations and special ministries. This video was shared at all 65 ELCA Synod Assemblies in 2014.

We invite you to come to a Circle of Faith Parish congregation to learn about God’s work here, and how you can be a part of reaching out to include others in the circle of Christ’s love!
