Growing In Faith To Serve (G.I.F.T.S.)

G.I.F.T.S. is a lifelong faith formation opportunity that helps participants grow in their faith and share their faith through service and proclamation in their homes, congregations and wider community.

The G.I.F.T.S. program features a variety of ways you can be involved, including:

  • 1-day events in our synod featuring leading ELCA theologians and teachers
  • week-long Lay School of Theology events at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN
  • a mentoring relationship with a pastor from the WND Synod
  • local G.I.F.T.S. groups with peers in the program who gather for conversation, Bible study and fellowship
  • A schedule for G.I.F.T.S. Daily Bible Reading (pdf) and commitment to daily prayer time

$15 event registration for each event you attend (covers lunch, materials, etc.)
