For the upcoming Adult education on January 22nd, we will be meeting in the sanctuary. We are extending an invitation for the congregation to join us on our journey to becoming an RIC (Reconciling in Christ) church. An RIC statement has been given to the church council and it has been approved. We are inviting you to listen to the RIC statement that has been submitted so you can fully understand its mission and purpose. A discussion and question period will allow you to inquire and address any ideas, concerns or clarification on this topic.
A guest speaker has been asked to join us in our journey to help in our understanding of what it means to be an RIC church. This statement can be part of our mission as an all welcoming and accepting church. Our goal is to learn together and have the congregation vote on accepting this statement. We can then be an official RIC church.
Our agenda for the 22nd includes reading the statement. A review by BJ Metzger of LGBTQIA+ history with ELCA. A summary by Jenna Sethi will be given of the connection with our youth feedback in this endeavor. After the presentations, time will be set aside for discussion and questions.
