Our search database currently includes Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregations only. The full list of congregations is shown by default, sorted first by state or province and then by city or town. To refine or customize the list, please use the search form below. The RIC synod, college, seminary and organization lists are on a separate page.
In 1984 ReconcilingWorks started the Reconciling in Christ program to identify and recognize Lutheran congregations that welcome lesbian and gay believers. Since July 2002, the Reconciling in Christ program has been committed to the inclusion of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
All congregations, synods and organizations on the RIC Roster have adopted Affirmations of Welcome of gay and lesbian persons. Some congregations on the RIC Roster have also voted to include bisexual and transgender persons in their Affirmations of Welcome. The RIC program is committed to an ongoing process of education and engagement toward a fully inclusive RIC Roster.
We try to keep this list as up-to-date as possible. If the information for your congregation has changed, please have your pastor call our office (651-665-0861) to update your RIC listing.
