ELC Affirmation of Welcome

Edmonds Lutheran Church is a reconciling, affirming, and inclusive Christian community striving through worship, love and service to welcome all people just as God created them.

If you’ve never set foot in a church, if you had a bad experience, or you worship regularly, we welcome everyone without exception and regardless of sex, race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, physical and mental ability, age, or economic circumstances.

We recognize that each person is a unique creation of God and, through Grace, is called a child of God. We pledge to ourselves and to all others that we will strive to live as a reconciling people, in our life together, working to be a sign in the community that Jesus Christ is here.
