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 refer to ELCA actions expressing a position on specific social questions at a particular time. They are framed within and to be consistent with the social statements and messages of this church’s social teaching. They are adopted either by an 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.
