At St. Luke Lutheran, we are deeply committed to embracing diversity and pursuing justice for all. Loving our neighbors as ourselves requires an active dedication to understanding, addressing, and dismantling the divisions that exist in our world. In our pursuit of a more inclusive and equitable society, we have outlined our key areas of focus:

Education and Resources:

We recognize the importance of education in fostering understanding and empathy. We are dedicated to equipping ourselves and our community with the knowledge and resources needed to address the issues that perpetuate divisions. Through workshops and accessible materials, we strive to create an environment where open dialogue and learning can flourish.


Building Community Relationships:

We understand that true connection comes from reaching out and building relationships with diverse groups of people. We actively seek to create spaces that welcome and embrace individuals from all walks of life. By engaging with different cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives, we aim to foster a community that celebrates the richness of diversity.


Pursuing Justice and Equality:

We believe that justice and equality are fundamental rights that every person deserves. We are dedicated to actively engaging in initiatives that address and combat discrimination in all its forms. This includes advocating for racial justice, gender equality, inclusion of people with disabilities, religious tolerance, and LGBTQIA+ rights. Furthermore, we acknowledge the impact of economic disparity and work towards alleviating its effects. We are also committed to addressing the disproportionate impact of ecological crises on marginalized groups, advocating for their rights and well-being.

Together, we strive to create a society where everyone is treated with dignity, respect, and fairness. We recognize that this work requires ongoing commitment, introspection, and action. We invite you to join us on this journey of love, justice, and equality as we work towards a more inclusive and compassionate world.


At St. Luke Lutheran, we firmly believe that diversity is a strength, and justice is our shared responsibility. Together, let us strive to make a positive difference and create a community where all are welcomed, valued, and embraced.
