Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Epiphany Lutheran Church (Oviedo, FL).
Their welcome statement reads:
“At Epiphany Lutheran Church we believe that God loves and forgives us completely. This gift of grace inspires us to share God’s love with others. We strive to follow the example of Christ, as we grow in love, and welcome into full participation persons of every race, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic situation, physical or mental ability, or any other circumstance. We strive to build relationships based on trust. We embrace God’s gift of human diversity and affirm that all people are created in God’s image. As God’s beloved children, all people are recipients of God’s love and grace. We welcome all who have known the pain of exclusion and isolation in church and society. We value diversity and we are united in faith in Jesus Christ. We welcome all people to live out this commitment through worship, study and service. We pray for guidance as we grow more fully into the body of Christ. Amen.”
