Great Rivers Collaborative

The Holy Spirit guides our congregation to perform amazing mission and ministry using the resources we have been blessed with.   Recently, leaders from several area ELCA churches gathered to discuss how the gifts within individual congregations could be used in conjunction with other congregations to perform even greater mission and ministry.  From these conversations, the Great Rivers Collaborative (GRC) was formed.

The GRC member congregations are Atonement, Good Shepherd, Living Christ, Shepherd of the Hills, St. Philips, Unity, and Zion.  The GRC Committee already has several ideas and will share them with you soon.  We encourage you to participate as you are able in upcoming GRC events!    

If you have questions or ideas, please contact Atonement’s GRC representatives, Keith Tomazi (314-831-1607), David Cole (314-921-4264), or Cathy Hohl (314-862-3822).

Reformation Celebration 

The initial Great Rivers Collaborative event was a great success with an extra special worship service, a presentation about what the GRC is, and a meal and fellowship.  Photos and other material from the event are available here.

The GRC Committee thanks everyone who made this possible, including the pastors, worship leaders, musicians and choir, ushers, and food committee.  A special thanks to everyone at Unity who were such gracious hosts!
