Welcome to Spirit of Life Ministries

Pastor Sarah talks to the congregation at Spirit of Life in Port Orchard, WA

There's a place for you here.

How often in our busy lives do we yearn to just complete the task at hand? It is our human nature to want to be in control; yet, the Gospel reminds us that our lives of faith are never completely tidy or under control; instead, we are constantly invited by Jesus to be questioning, changing and growing.

The challenge is to always remember that our faith is a journey. Can you imagine the power and beauty of the Spirit we might miss in our lives each day if all we see and seek is the destination? I would suggest to you that the most amazing things we experience are neither “here” nor “there” but often found in the “in between” places of our lives.

In God's peace,
Pastor Sarah

Spirit of Life is a Welcoming, Renewing and Serving Intergenerational Community in Christ.

We are a community of faith, trusting in God, rooting ourselves in the sacramental understanding of God's grace, responding to community needs, devoting ourselves to prayer, Bible study and fellowship, welcoming all as Christ welcomes and witnessing to God doing new things in the community and in our lives. Together, we profess our belief in the risen Christ, and trust in the Lutheran understanding that we are all saved by God's grace through faith. Spirit of Life is friendly & welcoming to all.

God's Work. Our Hands.

We are a welcoming, renewing and serving intergenerational community of discipleship in Christ, joyfully carrying out the mission of God in the world.

We are a publicly engaged church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work. We do God's work in the world — the work of restoring and reconciling people and communities. We pursue justice and seek peace no matter how long the journey or wide the chasm. Because we are grounded in God's love and forgiveness, we are well equipped to live and serve here and now, in the world, with all its complexities, tensions and ambiguities.

There is no aspect of life in which God is not active, no place where God is not present. And this is exactly where we are called to participate in God's work, God's mission, in the thick of life, embracing individuals, families and communities that are hungry for hope and healing, justice and peace, advocates and partners.
