Greetings from your Open & Affirming Task Force!

Updated: Apr 24

As you may recall, this Task Force was commissioned for our endeavor in early November.

I want to remind you who has stepped up to work on this faith-filled journey. Our team is

comprised of:

● Bill Brinkhorst

● Kirk Dalgaard

● Karen Papin

● Cynthia Rosfeld

● Barbara Smith

● under the guidance of Pastor Vicki

We've been meeting regularly since November following the guidelines in Building an Inclusive

Church, a 68-page workbook endorsed by the UCC.

We're now at the starting point to begin our One-to-One conversations with each congregation

member. As of this week, we have begun these individual meetings.

These discussions will involve hearing your thoughts about an Open & Affirming certification's

impact on St. Lucas UCC. We’re eager to take in what everyone has to say about this

proposition. Members of the Open & Affirming team hope to meet with as many members of

the church as possible. Please let one of us know if you would like to be part of these


We aim to work through every point of the workbook with the hope of securing the best result for

St. Lucas UCC. We genuinely want to determine who God is presently calling us to be in our

congregation and our community. This process will not be rushed.

In the meantime, if you have any questions concerning this process or topic you are welcome

and invited to contact any of the team members listed above.

Thank you.
