A New RIC Community: Bethlehem Lutheran Church (Sturbridge, MA)

Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Bethlehem Lutheran Church (Sturbridge, MA).

Their welcome statement reads:

“We believe and admit all people are created as both one hundred percent sinner and one hundred percent saint; that all people are undeservingly cherished children of God, loved and saved by grace through faith.

We are called to love our neighbors, as ourselves, whoever that neighbor might be.

We understand the injustice that has been the burden of the LGBTQIA+ community, the damage that has been done by the Church, and we seek forgiveness for that through that understanding. All we have to offer is our love and our community, and we offer it.

All races, all ages, every sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression; there is room for you here at our table, come and be fed.”
