RIC Celebration!

Hello ECLC family!

Edina Community Lutheran Church has the honor of hosting the Reconciling in Christ annual worship service on Saturday, January 20th at 4:30pm. Reconciling in Christ is a designation for Lutheran communities that publicly welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.  While ECLC has been RIC for 33 years, this is the first time that ECLC has hosted the service in at least 20 years (and maybe ever), so we are extra excited!   Pastor Stephanie, Pastor Jeff, and Deacon Lauren will preside during the service; Deacon Mark Sedio of Central Lutheran will lead music and Pastor Joseph Crippen of Mount Olive Lutheran will preach.

The annual ReconcilingWorks Worship Service is an inclusive service where all of the Reconciling in Christ congregations in the Twin Cities synod come together to worship and share a meal. It’s a powerful experience, and it’s right here at our church this year. Please come for worship and stay for the soup supper afterward!
