REDEEMER LUTHERAN CHURCH
Redeemer is committed to working for social justice and equity in our neighborhood, North Minneapolis, and wherever we have influence. We strive for to be reconcilers among people of color, minorities, the LGBTQIA+ community, and as representatives of the Body of Christ who is all and is in all (Col. 3:11).
During 2017, Redeemer partnered with Edina Community Lutheran Church and Westwood Lutheran Church to co-sponsor a monthly race forum through which we engaged with congregants and the community about how to be a Beacon of Hope for racial justice. The process of learning and listening ultimately birthed the Black Lives Matter Coalition within Redeemer.
In 2018 and 2019, Redeemer is continuing the work of reconciliation as we fully establish and solidify our commitment to LGBTQIA+ inclusion and affirmation, and to learning from our queer, Black, Indigenous, Muslim, and Immigrant neighbors what it means to be the full reflection of God as people of all races, faiths, genders, and orientations building God's Kingdom.
