It was 2013 when TLC underwent a seven-month long intentional discussion on the issue of marriage equality. After much discussion and a survey of the congregation, it was determined TLC was largely supportive of welcoming  families and individuals regardless of sexual orientation.

The TLC  council unanimously voted in 2014 to adopt this official welcome statement:

Transfiguration Lutheran Church welcomes all who seek to experience the joy of God’s love and grace.
We welcome all because God welcomes all people of every race, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, and relationship status. Our unity is in Christ. Therefore we walk with each other through addictions, physical and mental illnesses, legal and socio-economic circumstances and other life challenges.

All are welcome here. You are welcome here.

The council also voted to seek rostered status as a member of ReconcilingWorks. ReconcilingWorks is an organization of laypeople, pastors, and congregations primarily from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) working for the full acceptance and inclusion of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions in the life of the Church.

In October 2014, Transfiguration Lutheran Church was officially accepted as a member of ReconcilingWorks and included in their directory of congregations. To learn more click here: ReconcilingWorks Lutherans for Full Participation.
