Faith Lutheran Church in Forest Lake has voted to approve working as partners with Settled. The church will be the first faith-based institution to explore creating a tiny house community called a “Sacred Settlement” on church property.
“We’re so excited to take the first step in partnering with Settled on this visionary work of building a new kind of community for the homeless,” says Pastor John Klawiter of Faith Lutheran. “This vote is just the beginning of a collaborative process. The intention is not to simply put tiny homes in a parking lot. We’re creating a community with green space and intentional architectural elements that support a culture of permanence, safety, and hospitality.”
