Welcome to the website of the Portland Metro Chapter of Lutherans Concerned / North America! Lutherans Concerned has recently changed its name to ReconcilingWorks; however, the chapter has decided to continue using Lutherans Concerned in its name.
ReconcilingWorks is a national organization working for the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Lutherans in all aspects of the life of the Church and its congregations. Local chapters like ours coordinate worship services, insightful speakers, and fellowship events., but the mission remains the same.
We foster mutual support and friendship in a spiritual setting, reaching out to people in need, communicating to local Lutheran church members, and building affirming communities.
