RIC Celebration/Pride Sunday
June 26, 2022
GLC Voted YES!
to becoming a Reconciling in Christ Congregation!
The vote was unanimous at the congregational meeting last Sunday. What does this mean? This means that we’ll be listed in the public records of Reconciling Works, our ELCA partners that work for inclusion of our LGBTQIA+ neighbors, racial equity and justice for those who have been marginalized. We will have access to their materials, logo, and other resources to help us in our goal of becoming more inviting to people in our community, especially those who have been pushed out of churches in the past when their full identity or history has become known.
In tandem with our Reconciling in Christ Congregation designation, our Council is working on updating our welcome statement. Furthermore, during the month of June we’ll have a special celebratory worship service on June 26, Pride Sunday, to mark the beginning of this partnership in ministry.
