Welcome

Welcome to my website! Thanks for stopping by. Here you will find links to events, writings, and videos, plus my contact information. I am so excited to announce my new book, Beckoned:Hearing God's Call to Deeper Faith, which will be available through Amazon in late February 2021.
May God bless you and keep you along your journey,
Rev. Stephanie Lape

Events

Worship
Worship Sundays at 9 AM PST, online for now on our YouTube channel.
Pastoral Services
As a pastor I am asked to do all kinds of things. Sometimes even the animals need attention! If I can help, please let me know.
Journey in Faith
We have Wednesday evening meetings on Zoom at 7 PM. This is a safe place to explore and share. Contact the church office for more information on how to join us.
Bible Study
We have Friday morning Bible studies on Zoom. We explore the origins and meanings of these sacred writings. Contact the church office for more information on how to join us.

Writings

Beckoned
In Beckoned, I shared my sometimes difficult lifelong spiritual journey. I hope the book inspires the reader to ask: "How am I beckoned? What do I understand about God, myself, and the church? Am I willing to grow even deeper?"
Articles
I am happy to be a contributing author to Living Lutheran Magazine. I've written and published six articles and have one soon to be published in March, 2021. They have a lot of other great writing, too.
Reflections
Occasionally I share some thoughts about topics of importance to our journey in faith.
Presentations
I am available to speak over Zoom -- and eventually in person once again -- on my book, spiritual practices, and interfaith topics. I have previous experience speaking in mosques, synagogues, and Buddhist temples, either with the clergy or laity there, or individually. I have shared with small and large groups at churches and schools. Get in touch and I'll help however I can.
