Sixteen years ago at First Lutheran Church, we adopted a mission question..."Does Love Live Here?" Having a question means that we always have to go back to it and wrestle with it to make sure it is still true. This journey has taken us down the road of wellness and so The Love Grows Here Wellness Center was born. We partner with the Nursing Department of Metro State University providing free foot care and blood pressure checks; Walk-In Counseling with free counseling services, Sew We Work doing clothes mending, Healing Touch and Qigong, Ministering Angels Closet providing housewares and clothing, and the Listening House is now housed in our sanctuary building providing sanctuary for those experiencing poverty. If you have questions or would like to volunteer or would like to know more, contact Pastor Chris Olson Bingea.
