God's Work. Our Hands.
For Our Visitors
We're So Glad You Stopped By....
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about Living Faith Lutheran!  This page - and the related visitor pages that you can link to at the left - are just for you. They're by far the most important part of our website.
We are a welcoming, growing congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We've been opening our doors to families in the Rockville area, serving needs within our community & joyfully sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ since 1952 - more than 60 years!
But many of the most active members of our community of faith were visitors - like you, checking out websites ... stopping by churches that seemed promising ... and looking for a vibrant, friendly community of faith that met our spiritual needs.
We remember how intimidating, confusing and even frustrating the whole process can be.  How can you really size up a church based on its website - at least enough to know whether a Sunday-morning visit makes sense?  What do they believe there?   What do they wear to worship services?  And what questions can I ask without sounding foolish or irreverent?
Well that last one's easy: At Living Faith, there are no stupid questions; we welcome them all, and promise to answer them as honestly and thoroughly as we can. We'll admit it when we're not sure about something, and we're fine with sometimes agreeing to disagree.  We value bringing your questions (and ours) to the study of Scripture. After all, we believe Jesus Christ died to take away our sins ... not our minds.
We want to make it easy, pleasant and fun for you to give Living Faith a closer look. We'll help you find out more about:
  • Our beliefs, our mission and our dynamic pastor, the Rev. Sandra Cox Shaw. (Don't miss her sermons - they're powerful & inspiring!)
  • Our church's rich history and forward-looking ministries, which make it easy for you to help our community, nation and planet.
  • Our Sunday service times and worship style, childcare options, where to park, what to wear and other frequently asked questions (FAQs).
If you'd like to find out even more about us, we've provided PDFs of brochures, newsletters and other documents you can download and print.
And of course, we'd love to answer any questions you have by phone or email. Feel free to contact us at any time.  We look forward to hearing from you!
