The congregation of Lake Nokomis
Lutheran Church affirms that "All are welcome in this place."We celebrate the words of the apostle Paul:
"There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there
is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus"
(Galatians 3:28). Here are the words of invitation we use
to welcome people to the table of the Lord:"The Risen Christ has
invited us to this table.Whoever you are, however you feel, for
whatever reasons you are here, come to the feast.Whatever your condition, whatever questions
you have, wherever you are on your spiritual journey: know that our host is the
one who has given his life for the world, the one who was raised to new life,
and the one who invites us to come to the table." We are a community whose members differ
in age, ethnicity, social status, and vocation.Our journeys in life often look very different on the surface.But we believe that God's love changes
everything--for everybody.Our faith
tradition is based on a life-transforming story that is both ancient and
timely.It is a story of a powerful and
patient God who has boundless love for all people in the world.It is a story of Jesus Christ changing
lives.It is a story that brings comfort
and strength to all people today. We believe all people share the worth
that comes from being loved and forgiven children of God.We want it to be known that we welcome all
people--regardless of race, age, culture, national origin, ethnicity, sexual
orientation, family status, marital status, gender identity, physical or
cognitive ability, or economic condition--into the life-transforming story of
Jesus Christ at this congregation.
