Special Congregation Meeting
Palm Sunday, April 14
A special congregation meeting shall be held Palm Sunday, April 14 immediately following worship in the sanctuary to vote on a wording change in Messiah Lutheran’s Welcome statement.
Recommended modification to the Welcome Statement is as follows:
Second paragraph, second line, to delete the word “ability” from the phrase “physical ability” and to add the words “or mental state“; the entire phrase then reading:
. . .”Whatever your nationality, color, sexual orientation, gender identity, family situation, physical
ability or mental state, economic status or religious background, we pray that you will find here a place to grow in the love of Christ; . . .

You Are Welcome Here
…whether you are married or single,
for we will partner with you;
…whether you are a parent or a child of one,
for we will be family together with you;
…whether you know what you believe,
or have no idea what you believe,
for we are one with you in pursuit of
a deeper knowledge of God;
…whether you are from this place or far away,
for we were all strangers once ourselves.
Whatever your nationality, color, sexual orientation, gender identity, family situation, physical ability, economic status or religious background we pray that you will find here a place to grow in the love of Christ; love that bears all things; knowing that God’s love is bigger than anything we can ask or imagine.
Messiah Lutheran is a Reconciling in Christ congregation.
