Social Policy Resolutions

We are thoughtful and deliberating as a church, and we are actively engaged in God’s work in the world.

Social policy resolutions are actions on matters of social concern, in addition to social statements and social messages. They are adopted either by an Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELCA) Churchwide Assembly or the ELCA Church Council to address the need for special resolutions or actions related to specific social concerns. As a consequence, social policy resolutions normally are brief and limited in scope. They present timely resolutions that commit this church to particular actions that are derived from and consistent with the teachings and policy of the ELCA.
