Pride matters to Resurrection, because we know how important it is to say “out loud” what we practice and believe. You should not have to guess whether you will be welcomed and affirmed in any community of faith, and LGBTQ+ persons don’t have to guess at RLC.
Respect, Love, Community means anyone who shares in the life of this congregation shares all of it. That means full inclusion – no exclusions, no fine print.
Resurrection Lutheran Church was proud to walk in the #IndyPride2019 Parade for the first time on Saturday, June 8, 2019 and then again when the Indy Pride Parade returned in 2022. Resurrection hosted a booth at the 1st Annual Greenwood Pride Block Party on Saturday, June 5, 2021 and returned in 2022 to share love at the Greenwood Pride Festival on June 4, 2022!
A word of welcome
I knew I’d found a special place when RLC called me, an out gay man, to be one of their pastors. Speaking my truth as a faith leader is an incredible, empowering gift. Seeing this congregation take its truth to the streets for Pride is a little piece of heaven, and it means I can say with lots of joy and zero hesitation that you are welcome here, too. – Pastor Ryan Bailey
