A New RIC Community: First Evangelical Lutheran Church (Poughkeepsie, NY)

Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: First Evangelical Lutheran Church (Poughkeepsie, NY).

Their welcome statement reads:

“As members of God’s family in mission together, we are part of the whole complicated, colorful spectrum of God’s creation in all its diversity, practicing our faith and putting it into action as we strive to make a difference, in big and small ways, through God’s grace. We recognize that we are all called to be one body with many members, from infants to seniors. We welcome people of all races, ethnicities, shapes and sizes; of every marital status, political affiliation, socio-economic status, sexual orientation and gender identity or expression; of different faith traditions, different physical, mental and emotional abilities, and those in recovery or struggling with addiction. We know that no matter who you are, Jesus accepts you, and so do we.”
