People who participate in the life of our faith community come from all walks of life. Some of us have been Lutheran since the day we were born. Some of us became Lutheran a few months ago. Some of us live in Portland, and some of us travel a long way to get here. We are married people, single people, and divorced people. We are young, old, and everything in between. We are gay, straight, men, women, and genderqueer people. Many of us have more questions than answers. Most importantly, we don't need to leave any of our identities at the door in order to participate fully. We all come as we are.

What holds us together is our desire to be disciples of Jesus, to work together for the common good, and to share God's love.

We hope you will also find a home amongst God's people at St. Ansgar!
