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!
