Worship – UPDATES:
As the Delta variant rages through the US and as cases have skyrocketed here in Iowa over the past month, the council once again STRONGLY RECOMMENDING that ALL wear masks when INDOORS here at the church. We want to be able to continue our fall ministry plans AND keeps our children and the most vulnerable among us SAFE. We now know that even the vaccinated can transmit the virus that can mean ICU visit or even death for those who are unable to be vaccinated. Please help us keep our community whole by wearing your mask indoors, continuing to wash/sanitize your hands, spreading out as much as possible, and staying home to participate online whenever you are sick or have covid symptoms. If/when you are seated in the church AND able to keep 6ft between your neighbor, we welcome you to take off your mask if you’re comfortable to do so, but encourage you to please keep it on whenever moving about or unable to keep safe distance requirements. We will continue to commune, just in a more streamline manner. We will once again take out the liturgy elements in worship to cut down on singing. And we will take out food/drink from fellowship. It is our deepest hope that this threat will pass quickly, but we know that can only happen if we all do our part. Thank you for understanding and please contact Pastor or Council President Kari Gehrke with any questions or concerns.

Office Hours:

Office Hours: MWF 9am to Noon. Masks are recommended for those who are unvaccinated and we ask that you sanitize in and out of the building to slow the spread of germs.

A Statement of the Seeds of Faith Lutheran Church Council Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

In response to the social unrest and cries for racial justice in our nation, Seeds of Faith, in compliance with the Southeastern Iowa Synod Council and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America:

Condemn racism, white supremacy, and all acts of injustice against Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).

Seeds of Faith is committed to the love and welcome of all people. Jesus’ love was and is unconditional for the whole world and God asks us to love in this same way. Therefore, Seeds is dedicated to the long-haul process of dismantling racism and white supremacy from our lives, our communities, and our nation’s systems and institutions.

As part of this commitment, we have formed an action team to specifically address this topic. If you'd like to join us, we meet the first and third Monday evenings at 6:30pm (via zoom).


*This congregation is also LGBTQIA+ inclusive* For more specific information, please click on the page entitled "What We Believe."

The ELCA and Seeds of Faith are all inclusive. We are a safe place for you to be yourself, just as God made you, not how the world wants you to be. In our Beloved Community, everyone is welcome and encouraged to show up as their FULL self, without judgment, damnation or fear. We believe in a God of LOVE, Life, and Liberation.
