Mission Statement Community Possibility Acceptance Wellness
Thursday Evenings September 20, 2012 - May 9, 2013 4:30pm to 7:30pm
The Love Grows Here Wellness Center is a place where all are welcome and we ask you to come as you are! We hope that those who participate feel a sense of welcome where they can rest and play, socialize and meet new people, and receive much needed wellness services that will be an ongoing source of holistic healing and wellness in your life from week to week.
As part of our mission of First Lutheran Church on the East side of Saint Paul, Minnesota, we ask that at the Love Grows Here Wellness Center that you come as you are, bringing your gifts and your brokenness to a place where you may find wellness, rest, and relationships. By offering pragmatic services like, free mental health counseling, pastoral care, alternative healing modalities, community education courses, food assistance, social justice organizations, activities for children and youth, we seek to be in relationship. In the true spirit of discipleship, we provide sacred space for nurses who come each week to wash and care for the feet of those in our community. We encourage everyone to call each other by name and take time to tell and acknowledge each other’s stories.
Each week we carve out time in silence, reflecting with gratitude about one another coming together in community, about the hands that have grown and prepared the food, for the opportunity to find respite and wellness in a safe space, and for everyone who plays a role.
What does the wellness center mean to you? "It means people who can come together for the good of fun, love, and health." ~TA
