We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person–questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.  Learn more about the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America: http://www.ELCA.org

In the 60 year history of RELC, a lot of change has occurred in its home community of Hilliard, OH.  RELC continues to evolve as the needs of God’s people are ever-changing. This is a very active congregation, with ministries that work both within and outside the walls of our building.

The breadth of our work includes…

feeding those who are in need,

both at our own doorstep through our B.O.L.D. food pantry and in partnership with First English Lutheran Church in downtown Columbus.

supporting the faith of our members, or anyone interested in participating:

      • Book club
      • Bible study
      • Health ministry
      • Adult Forum

…to name just a few.

learning and socializing for grade school age children and youth

  • Dedicated team of teachers and leaders creating an environment for children to learn about Christ and practice his teachings
  • Activities specifically tailored to teens/young adults
  • 4 for All: one Sunday a month for multi-generational learning, from our newest to our most mature learners…and everyone in between

We enjoy one another’s company in fellowship between services and at other times throughout the year, often complete with the all-important Lutheran casserole (and a lot of other goodies too)!.

We truly strive to do God’s Work with our hands.
