Proposed Welcome Statement
This Welcome Statement was approved by the RLC Council at the July 21, 2022 Council meeting. This was also presented at the RLC Annual Meeting held on Sunday, August 28, 2022.
Called by Jesus, Roseville Lutheran Church welcomes you with open arms, minds, and hearts. We are all beloved children of God, and we celebrate each other completely: all ages, abilities, races and ethnicities; all sexualities, gender identities and expressions; all family circumstances, and experiences.
RLC pledges our authentic welcome and hospitality. We commit to learn, to grow, and to undo oppressive norms that divide us, while we humbly strive to dismantle barriers to racial, social, and economic justice.
Following Christ’s example, let us love God and our neighbor together."
There are four commitments in becoming an RIC (Reconciling in Christ) Congregation. We have, over the past few years, already achieved the first two... completely separate and before the inclusion work we've been doing the past year and a half. The next commitment to consider is the Welcome Statement.
