Lower Susquehanna Synod affirms welcome statement, becomes RIC synod

lowersusRICReconcilingWorks is proud to announce our newest RIC community: the Lower Susquehanna Synod, ELCA.

Their welcome statement reads: “In the Lower Susquehanna Synod of the ELCA we feed the hungry as we have been fed by Christ. We welcome all who are seeking God’s love and grace. We welcome all because God welcomes all, regardless of race or culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, or relationship status. We welcome all without regard to addictions, physical or mental health, imprisonment, socio-economic circumstances or anything that too often divides us. Our unity is in Jesus Christ.”

The synod voted to become an RIC synod at their 2016 synod assembly in June.
