On June 20th, 2023, Christ Lutheran voted to become a Reconciling in Christ congregation. Since 1983, the Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Program has been a public way for faith communities to see, name, celebrate, and advocate for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions in the Lutheran church. Previous to the decision, Christ Lutheran has engaged in much discussion, thought, contemplation, and prayer and we are thankful that we are able
to genuinely welcome all people to our congregation!
