Even the briefest interaction with the congregants at Trinity Lutheran Church in Fort Washington affirms that these are people dedicated to being welcoming to all, regardless of any boundaries or labels. This kind of inclusiveness always begins with a congregation’s leadership, and Pastor Kris Chandler is no exception; she seems to truly look forward to the sticky questions of faith and encourages a community where these discussions are encouraged. Through these discussions and studies, in addition to prayer, worship and service this church seeks to shine Jesus’s light onto the world.
From their website: “Whatever your race, culture, or color, you are welcome here. Regardless of marital status, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, political philosophy, physical or intellectual ability, you are welcome here. If you are inked, pierced, both, or neither, you are welcome here. When you come with squirmy toddlers or vocal infants, you are welcome here. It doesn’t matter if you have a background in the Lutheran church or not. Whether you come from another church or no church, you are welcome here. If you strongly believe or are unsure if you believe anything, you are welcome here.”
