God's Work. Our Hands.

Mission and Goals

St. Armands Key Lutheran Church’s Purpose is:

“To Worship Christ, Grow in Grace, Share God’s Love with All.”

To Worship Christ:  Worship is our heartbeat as we gather in community to encounter God, who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Centered together in the sharing of Word and Sacrament, we find support and strength as we proclaim Jesus as Lord and Savior.  I worship, God’s Spirit calls us together; God speaks to us through shared scripture, prayer and song; God’s gift of salvation through Christ inspires and encourages us; and God blesses us and sends us in mission to the world.

Grow in Grace:  Grace is often defined as God’s Redemption at Christ’s Expense.  It is the free gift of God’s unconditional love offered with no strings attached.  Grace motivates Christians to grow in discipleship through the study of God’s word, and through responding to God’s love as generous and welcoming people.

Share God’s Love with All:  Faith active in love is the calling of all the baptized as together we seek to share and spread the Gospel through active engagement in our community and throughout the world.
