A New RIC Community: St. Mark’s Lutheran Church (Aurora, IL)

Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: St. Mark’s Lutheran Church (Aurora, IL).

Their welcome statement reads:

“We believe that we are called to compassion and justice. We seek to faithfully practice the pursuit of peace, social justice, and environmental stewardship in our world. We proclaim God’s wide welcome to all, especially those who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in church and in society, and are committed to supporting racial equity.

We seek to foster a climate of purposeful inclusion that celebrates and supports the lives, relationships, and the individual and group contributions of all children of God, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, race, color, national origin or religious background. We welcome you with Christ’s love.
