A new RIC community, Atonement Lutheran Church

ReconcilingWorks is proud to announce our newest Reconciling in Christ congregation, Atonement Lutheran Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

“Atonement Lutheran is a congregation undergoing renewal for ministry in the heart of Philly’s eclectic neighborhood, Fishtown. This neighborhood has seen a series of rapid changes over the past few years. Such changes can bring gifts and challenges. Rooted in the Gospel and our Lutheran tradition, Atonement seeks to be a healing, supportive and welcoming presence in Fishtown. We do so by being part of the presence of Christ in this community and share God’s reconciling love with all people. Atonement has had a long history of supporting LGBT inclusion. Now we seek to partner with other community organizations that work to create places of safety and inclusion in the city of Philadelphia. Our new RIC status helps to underscore our commitment to these endeavors.”

It is with great pleasure that ReconcilingWorks welcomes Atonement Lutheran Church in Philadelphia, PA to the RIC community!
