Everyone is welcome and affirmed here. And not just to worship, but to experience, participate in, and even lead ministries of all sorts and be part of the community. It's a friendly, challenging place. For everyone.
We affirm that all people deserve to have their identity and their family celebrated. We practice inclusion and affirmation because they are practices of faithfulness. People are people are people and God loves all of us. You are welcome here...just the way you are.
Whether you are straight, gay, bisexual, lesbian, trans, intersex, asexual, two-spirit, questioning...You are welcome here.
Whether you are sober, seeking addiction counseling, a member of AA...You are welcome here.
Whether you are Lutheran, Catholic, Anglican, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, atheist, questioning...You are welcome here.
If you're not on the list...You are welcome here.
This is a place that creates space for people to heal, dream, and be part of a community. We host a pretty great coffee hour, too.
In convention in 2011, our national church (the ELCiC) approved a social statement on human sexuality, affirming the diginity and rights of ALL people, but specifically of "straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, two-spirited, queer, intersex and questioning" people and their families.
Church of the Cross began a congregational study on the social statement and a process to affirm the social statement on humani sexuality, which it completed October 20, 2012.
