Unconditional welcome. Unconditional love.
ALL ARE WELCOME IN THIS PLACE.
We welcome all people created in the image of God, Creator of the universe inclusive of: race, culture, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression; relationship or social status; abilities or disabilities; outcast or stranger; typical or atypical skills; how the world describes you or you describe yourself.
We invite those sure in who they are, those still seeking and those looking for a church that believes in a loving, non-judgmental, safe, inclusive, grace-filled God and a beloved community that reflects those values.
Because God loves us unconditionally, we share our Christian love through acceptance, inclusion, and understanding. We welcome you to share yourself, your time and talents with the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, a part of God’s universal Church. God made each of us unique and we share our diversity here.
Welcome, Inclusion, Celebration
We are Lutherans working with the recognition that racism, sexism, ageism, able-ism, heterosexism, homophobia, and all other artificial distinctions that seek to raise one group into privilege and preference over another, conspire together to diminish our world and the church.
Reconciliation is a fundamental value; it is what the Apostle Paul says we are all called to do. Through our participation in Reconciling in Christ, ministries, resources, events, and alliances, we build a community for worship, education, and support; foster welcome and acceptance in all settings; and offer full participation in all sacraments, inclusive liturgical resources, and ministries of the Church, we invite all people into Gospel lives of authenticity, integrity, and wholeness.
