STATEMENT OF WELCOME
As people who are being continually transformed by God’s inclusive, reconciling love through Jesus Christ, we are committed to becoming a community where all God’s children are welcomed and valued. On June 8, 2014 the people of Beautiful Savior voted to become a Reconciling in Christ congregation by adopting and pledging to live into the following statement of welcome:
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
Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church is a Christian community called to gather people from diverse backgrounds and to provide for them a safe and welcoming place that will enable them to grow in faith and service in the name of Jesus Christ. We, the members of Beautiful Savior, proclaim the good news that all people without regard to sexual orientation, gender identity, culture or ethnic background, economic status, physical or mental abilities, family status, gender, or age are welcomed into the life of our congregation, including our worship and sacraments, holy rites, ministry of service and fellowship. We pledge to live as God’s reconciling people in our life together as members of Beautiful Savior and in our outreach to the world.
All are welcome here! YOU are welcome here!
Events to Look Forward to!
Lenten Wednesdays 2015
5:30 Soup and bread supper
6:10 Intergenerational class using Scripture and art to reflect on our relationship with God and others
7 pm Lenten Service
March 25 “Love Commissions” is the theme for this evening’s intergenerational class and worship reflection. In class we’ll work with our handprints and explore how God is calling each of us to use our unique, God-given gifts in service to others. Susan Gustafson will be our facilitator. In worship we’ll hear a reflection by one of our youth, Jordan Snyder, who will speak about how God’s love commissions us–i.e., sends us out to share in the mission of Jesus Christ by serving others.
JOIN US SUNDAY, MARCH 29, 2015!
This coming Sunday will be a BIG day for the people of God here at Beautiful Savior. You won’t want to miss it!
Join us in worship this Sunday (8:30 or 11 am–your choice!), as we remember and celebrate the Passion of our Lord.
At 12:30 pm we will gather for a congregational meeting to vote on calling Pastor Chris to become the next pastor of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church.
Thanks be to God!
