Quote from: Dave Likeness on May 28, 2023, 03:08:12 PMWhat we know:LCMC started in 2001 as a breakaway from the ELCA. At the presenttime it has 970 congregations with about 300,000 members. Is thereanyone on this forum who is associated with this group? Does anyonehere have any more information about LCMC?
Quote from: Rev. Spaceman on June 02, 2023, 07:52:10 PMMy own personal perception is that there is among LCMC strong influence of American Evangelicalism and "contemporary" worship trends.I hope that clarifies some things. Though I definitely feel more at home in the NALC, I do believe there are many good people and some solid congregations in LCMC.
Quote from: Brian Stoffregen on June 02, 2023, 09:05:00 PMSome of the shortcomings you mentioned are what lead Lutheran Core to begin their own denomination with a hierarchy in 2010 (NALC) rather than just have congregations move to LCMC. The AALC (which formed in 1987) by congregations opposing the ELCA, wasn't a strong option because they do not ordain women.
