What is “Reconciling Ministry”? Recently our congregation voted unanimously to become a Reconciling Congregation and to join the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN).
At this same congregational meeting we revised our welcoming statement to read:
First Church is a vibrant, accepting congregation that welcomes all who seek God, inclusive of age, race, education, economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and special needs.
