ELCA Teachings

In this section, you will find short essays written by our pastor about ELCA Social Statements that were included in a series of monthly newsletters. These are not to be considered statements of belief but instead are starting points for conversations as Lutheran Christians work to live in the world and pray for a world that is more like The Kingdom of God. Not all ELCA Lutherans agree with all parts of our social statements – and that is okay. These are tools for us to use in order to have conversations.

If you have any questions about the ELCA Social Statements, you can read them in full on the ELCA Webpage. We hope this provides you with a starting place to understand how we seek to do God’s work in the world.
