After the worship service the school parents are providing the refreshments. April birthdays will also be celebrated.
Unfortunately,children's shoes are still a problem for poor families in Latvia, especially in rural areas. The Latvian Church in America Youth section (LELBA Jaunatnes nozare) has invited congregations in Canada and the United States to help by organizing fundraisers-Walk-a-Thons. The money will be used to buy shoes and socks for kids-also orthopedic and other special, hard to obtain footware for adults.
April 27th, after the worship service our Latvian school students will participate in the "Walk-a-Thon" fundraiser. They ask for the support of the Congregation and friends - by joining the walk or by supporting them by donations.
The walk will take place in the park adjacent to the church. Donation checks should be written to the Latvian Lutheran Church and noted for "Happy Feet!" They can be left with a school parent or mailed to the church.
For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. This is part of a national event.
Welcome to the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church of Washington, DC.
"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." Ps. 119:105
The Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church in Washington DC has been a center of Christian and Latvian fellowship for more than 60 years. It is a member of the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (LELBA).
Services and most events are conducted in Latvian. All are warmly invited to worship service and other events.
The church's mission is symbolized in its logo. The church is a tree rooted in cultural heritage, which has through the cross of Christ grown and borne fruit for fifty years. The Latvian symbol is found directly under the cross in the stained glass window behind the altar; it is visible under the altar. There is always room for more branches and for the fruit of the future.
Culture and faith mingle in church events, such as the celebration of Latvian Independence Day on November 18 and other cultural and church holidays; in outreach to Latvia and around the world; in concerts and other cultural events; in the church-run Latvian school; and in the casual chats around the coffee table after services.
A meditative pause,
a quiet moment of reflection
in the busy-ness of daily life.
