Reconciling In Christ (RIC) Welcome Statement

Lutheran Campus Ministry to UW-Stout (ELCA) is a community of welcome in Christ. As a Reconciling in Christ community, we affirm the worth and dignity of all persons regardless of their gender identity, race, sexual orientation, or any other category society uses to differentiate between people.

As followers of Christ, all members of Lutheran Campus Ministry to UW-Stout are compelled by the Gospel to seek reconciliation and wholeness in a world that is all too often an unloving place. We affirm with the apostle Paul “for as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members of one another” (Romans 12: 4-5).

Our facility and ministry programming will intentionally be a safe space, open to all students, staff and faculty. We will work to foster understanding and acceptance, community and inclusivity. We openly invite all who are seeking God’s love and grace to share in this relationship with Jesus Christ and work together for justice, peace and mercy.
