WHO IS WELCOME HERE

 

 

 

At our February 12, 2019 Church Council meeting, our council members voted by a majority of 7-3 to endorse the statement of welcome found below. It is the intent of the document to validate that all are welcome here and will not be judged or excluded for anything they feel makes them unworthy or anything by which anyone else might consider them unworthy. This document is not meant to suggest that our congregation wants people to struggle, whether personally or about others, with the actions or qualities in this document. This document is the beginning, not the end, of a conversation that needs to happen. More than that, it is a conversation we need to practice in real ways. This document is the beginning of our intentional effort to embody the welcome of Christ for all people, to the glory of God. – Pr. Kyle

 

 

 

We want it to be of public record that those of all racial and ethnic groups are welcome here.

 

 

 

We want it to be of public record that people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and members of their families are welcome here.

 

 

 

We want it to be known that those who suffer from addiction to drugs and alcohol (whether recovering or not), and their families are welcome here.

 

 

 

We want it to be known that women & men, girls & boys are welcome here and that they will not be harassed or abused here.

 

 

 

We want it to be of public record that in this congregation you can bring children to worship and even if they cry during the entire service, they are welcome.

 

 

 

We want it to be known that those who are promiscuous, or have had an abortion, or have fathered children and taken no responsibility for them, are welcome here.

 

 

 

We want it to be known that gossips, cheats, liars, thieves, and their families are welcome here.

 

 

 

We want it to be known that those who are disobedient to their parents and who have family problems are welcome here.

 

 

 

Let it be public knowledge that we at St. Peter Lutheran Church take seriously that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.  The young and old, the rich and poor, all of the broken are welcome here.

 

 

 

We want it to be public knowledge that we are justified by the grace of God and given the gift of redemption through Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

 

 

We offer welcome here because we believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for the ungodly.  That’s us.  Christ did not die for us after we showed signs of “getting it all together.”  Christ loved and still shows love to us while we are yet sinners.

 

 

 

Sinners are welcome here, sinners like you and me, and like our neighbors.  Let us not condemn the world, but let us proclaim to a broken and hurting world God’s forgiveness and grace.

 

 

 

We want it to be of public record that since we are a sinful people, we will not always be as quick to welcome as we should.  Let us be quick to admit our sin and seek forgiveness.

 

 

May God give us grace to welcome and forgive one another as Christ has welcomed and forgiven us.
