The following is an excerpt from Grace Lutheran, a church that is situated in the historic neighborhood of Irving, Texas.
Grace Lutheran’s website states that it is a Lutheran congregation with a membership of about 100 people, “whose purpose is to serve Christ and God through music, prayer, and service.”
It is a small congregation in a neighborhood that is mostly filled with older, mostly white people.
There are currently about 25 people in the congregation, and they are all children.
Grace is one of many Lutheran churches around the country that are looking to be more welcoming to their new members, and it is not just for the children, either.
The congregation is also looking to accommodate the elderly, who are often the only people in their community to attend services.
They are also looking for young people and women, but most importantly for LGBTQ people.
Grace’s pastor, Lenny Hoch, told me that the congregation is looking to welcome the LGBTQ community as well.
He said that in the future, they are planning on opening a youth ministry, and he is hoping to add a youth Bible study program.
Hoch said that while the church has welcomed people in recent years, there is a lot more work to do.
He noted that the church is not accepting any LGBTQ youth in their current role, and that it needs to be “more open and accepting.”
He said there are some people who do not want to be LGBTQ and would like to attend Grace, but that they can’t come unless they are “really committed to the mission of the church and really open and willing to be vulnerable and vulnerable in Christ.”
“The people who want to come here, they need to come to our ministry and to be baptized,” Hoch continued.
“If you don’t want to go to our service, you can come to the church.
If you want to stay in the church, you need to go and stay with the congregation.
You don’t have to do anything different.
There is no requirement that you come here.”
Grace Lutheran does not discriminate against LGBTQ people and it does not endorse any specific religious practice.
However, the congregation does welcome LGBTQ people in leadership roles.
Grace, which has a membership number of about 50, is located on the corner of Irving and New Braunfels, and is a few blocks from a large Jewish community, the Congregation Beth Din.
The Congregation has been accepting of LGBTQ people since the 1960s, when the Congregational Church of Irving was founded in 1882.
In 2012, the denomination announced that it would accept gay and lesbian couples for marriage.
“The church is a very welcoming congregation, welcoming of people,” Hoh said.
“There are people who are gay, lesbians, and bisexual.
We have a very open church.
We are open to the people of all ages.
There’s a lot of diversity, and we welcome everybody.”
Grace is not the only Lutheran congregation that is trying to be inclusive.
The Southern Baptist Convention has a “Church & State” website that provides information on various congregations.
The website, which is only accessible in English, lists a number of Lutheran churches that have recently made the change.
Some of the congregations listed are: The Lutheran Church of Canada, located in Mississauga, Ontario, which announced a policy in January that all of its congregations would allow same-sex couples to wed.
The Presbyterian Church, in New York City, which will allow same sex marriage, and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, in the U.S., which will continue to permit same sex marriages.
The Episcopal Church of America, located at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which plans to allow same gender marriage, as well as a branch of the Episcopal Church in Canada.
The United Church of Christ, located near the University of Notre Dame, in Chicago, which intends to allow gay and lesbians to marry, and a branch in New Jersey.
Grace has recently welcomed a number LGBTQ youth who are interested in joining the congregation and working with Grace.
“We’re welcoming young people into the congregation,” Hohl said.
He added that he believes that “the LGBTQ community will benefit from the congregation’s openness and the congregation will benefit more than from the people who might not be interested in going.”
Hoch noted that Grace is still looking for more LGBTQ people, and has been looking for ways to increase its membership.
“As a church, we want to reach out to people who need help and who need to be heard,” Hocher said.
When I asked Hoch about his experience as a pastor, he said that he has found that the people in his congregation have always been supportive.
He continued by saying that he and his wife, who is a pastor herself, are always in touch with the LGBTQ people who come to their church.
“You know, when you go to a church or you come to a gathering, there are
