Leaven Community Membership
Salt & Light Lutheran Congregation

There will be a joint Leaven Community membership and Salt and Light Lutheran Congregational meeting at 12 noon on Sunday, October 1, 2017 to call for consensus around the proposed Leaven Community Resolution for Sanctuary Declaration.

Over the last two months we have engaged in community conversations around the ways Leaven Community is being Sanctuary. A draft Resolution for Declaring Sanctuary was presented at the September 19th community conversation and members will use our consensus process for determining the final Resolution for Sanctuary Declaration at the October 1st meeting.

Document links for the draft Resolution for Sanctuary Declaration and Sanctuary Frequently Asked Questions are on the bottom of this page.
