Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Trinity Lutheran Church in Evanston, IL.
Their welcome statement reads:
“Our congregation, Trinity Lutheran Church, understands that our mission, as disciples of Jesus is to embody the scriptural call to foster wholeness of community by drawing all people together in love. We are, as St. Paul writes, ambassadors of reconciliation for the Christ through whom we are reconciled to God. We are agents of healing in a community of healing. That is why we offer unreserved welcome to all, and celebrate their presence among us. We offer: Welcome to long-time Lutherans, Christians from every tradition, and people new to faith. Welcome to those who want to follow Christ, who are curious and want to explore faith, who have doubts, and those who do not believe. Welcome to all who have no church home, who may be searching for a church home or who just want a place to heal and know that they are loved. Welcome to people of every age and size, color and culture, every sexual orientation and gender identity, socio- economic status, marital status, ability and challenge. This is a place where you are welcome to celebrate and sorrow, rejoice and recover. This is a place where lives are made new. We invite you to experience deep welcome in this community where we are being transformed by living the reconciling Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
