What is advocacy?
Holy Trinity advocacy group meets monthly to talk about how we can respond to and make our voices heard at the local, state and federal levels in addressing the biblical values of peacemaking, hospitality to strangers, care for creation, concern for people living in poverty and struggling with hunger and disease. As ELCA Lutherans, we are called to step forward as a public church that witnesses boldly to God’s love for all that God has created.
We are a non-partisan group that wishes to share legislative information provided by the ELCA, the Rocky Mountain Synod, and other sources, which affect the kind of community, state and nation in which we live. Come and join us.
