A New RIC Community: First Lutheran Church (West Barnstable, MA)

Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: First Lutheran Church(West Barnstable, MA).

Their welcome statement reads:

“We affirm with the apostle Paul that in Christ, “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female”.

We affirm that all people are created in the image of God and as beloved children of God, we are recipients of God’s love, grace and forgiveness. We invite the full inclusion of all people in the life and ministries of First Lutheran Church as we journey toward reconciliation through Christ.

Christ has made us one. We acknowledge this reconciliation extends to all people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientation, physical and mental abilities, and socioeconomic backgrounds as we are worthy individuals created by God. We rejoice in the manner in which diversity has enriched, nurtured and challenged the life and ministry we share in Christ. We will strive to be an inviting faith community, following the example set by Christ.”
