Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the Northwest District, LCMC (Lutheran Congregations in Mission For Christ)!  As the name indicates, the District is the regional associative body  of the LCMC, and our mission is to serve as a resource and cooperative hub for LCMC congregations – and LCMC affiliated individuals – in the great Pacific Northwest.

We believe that Faith is an undivisable component of Our Creator’s plan for life, and that, in a world of uncertainty, the bedrock of God’s Word is the anchor-point of being … sure  guidance and solidity for both present and future,  There is strength, too, in the blessing of fellow believers, and in the shared power of the Scriptures and Lutheran Confessions, we are both called and enabled to serve each other, our   communities, and our world (for more about the LCMC, please explore further at www.lcmc.net

On behalf of the Northwest District Council, I extend  an invitation to join us in embracing the exciting opportunities which God has been pleased to place before us – a vast geographical expanse, and enduring pioneer spirit. The Northwest Region is and always has been a place of challenge … but it has also always been a place of corresponding promise. The anticipation of realizing and affirming that promise, together in Faith, is the foundational motivation of our District.

In furtherance of this great charge, this site is intended to be a gathering place of ideas, resources, official District news and announcements, and above all, inspiration to service.  As the number of member congregations in the Northwest grows, our fervent hope is that users visit this site often to connect with one another, share information, and stay abreast of what is happening in our region.

God is good, and as the people and congregations of the LCMC strive together to fulfill the defining impulse of our name – “Mission for Christ” – it is hoped that the Northwest District of the LCMC will be a worthy and effective reflection of His goodness, both for His people and a world too often directionless and adrift.

Join us in “living forward” in Faith!  Welcome to this site, this body of believers, and this mission, Welcome!
