Who we are and what we believe: Highlands Lutheran Church is an open, welcoming and affirming Body of Christ intentionally following the life & teachings of Jesus, committing to hospitality and justice.
Reconciling in Christ congregation: We as the Highlands Lutheran Church invite all into the fullness of God’s love. This invitation is inclusive of all human kind, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, physical or mental ability, sex, or station in life. We pledge to use our differences as gifts for our work together.
Welcome to you, young soul and old soul in search of family.
Welcome to you, Christian, agnostic, of other faith tradition, or those on spiritual sojourn.
We welcome you all to our home, and we offer it up to you.
For we proclaim that all share a Spirit, identical in quality and everlasting nature.
Welcome to the right wing, the left, and to all who question what appears true.
Welcome to the lonely, or reassured, despairing, or those high in the flight of life.
We welcome you all to a place of sanctuary, a place for renewal, a place to know joy.
For we proclaim that a voice for love leads us all and calls us to find rest in safe community.
Welcome all sizes, all colors, and all gifts announcing your distinct character.
Welcome to your culture, sexual identity, life situation, and all your unique orientations.
We welcome you all to a place striving mightily to set judging of others aside.
For we proclaim that we hold not fast to expectations or demands, but honor all deeds of love.
We at Highlands celebrate the variances inherent in God’s creation, and we invite you to share in it with us.
