A new RIC community, Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church

ReconcilingWorks is proud to announce our newest Reconciling in Christ congregation, Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Chances are good you already know Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church. Founded in 1895, Salem has been serving up Swedish egg coffee, pancakes, and meatballs from its Minnesota State Fair dining hall for 64 years.  Salem’s history of hospitality provided the foundation for putting their inclusive welcome into writing. Located in north Minneapolis, Salem is theologically progressive and missionally minded, with worship being uniquely Lutheran and uniquely Salem.  There’s even a bluegrass band that leads worship on 4th Sundays! It’s a place to learn, grow, and belong–following God’s invitation to become your best you.

Will you consider helping us support more congregations along their welcoming journey? Your support helps us continue to provide networks, educational resources and training to LGBT Lutherans, allies and over 500 congregations and ministry settings (and rapidly counting) that publicly declare their welcome and affirmation of LGBT people. We can’t do it without you.
