A new RIC congregation, Pilgrim Lutheran Church

We are excited to announce our newest RIC congregation: Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Warwick, Rhode Island! Pilgrim Lutheran is a diverse and inclusive church that voted unanimously to extend a formal welcome to the LGBTQ community! They also have a strong outreach to the deaf community—they have an American Sign Language (ASL) translator at every service! We at ReconcilingWorks are excited about the bold ministry this congregation is leading and the outreach they are doing. Additionally, we are pleased to report that with this addition to the Rhode Island RIC roster, now 23% of the ELCA churches in Rhode Island are RIC!

That's an amazing percentage, and we are very proud! Please join us in welcoming Pilgrim Lutheran to the RIC community!
