ReconcilingWorks is proud to announce our newest Reconciling in Christ congregation, Elk River Lutheran Church in Elk River, MN.

“As a community striving to serve God and neighbor and to be open to tall people, we at Elk River Lutheran Church welcome all to join us as we struggle to better understand the mysteries of God’s teachings. We are challenged by Christ to care for, to love, to understand and to listen to each other, regardless of race, ethnicity, age , gender, marital status, physical and mental abilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin or economic status. We celebrate together our unity as God’s people. ERLC is a place where all are welcomed to participate fully in the life of this congregation and each person is invited to share his or her own unique gifts”. -Taken from ERLC welcome statement

Elk River is a church for those committed to a Lutheran theology of grace and love, where individual conscience is respected and people are encouraged to think for themselves.
