[i] In Holy Baptism we are all one in Chirst Jesus. January 21, 2016 is the 15th Anniversary of Grace Lutheran becoming a Reconciling in Christ congregation. At the annual meeting in 2001 Grace completed the process of openly welcoming gays, lesbians and transgendered persons into our congregation. While it has taken us and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America some time to fully live into this welcome, we are marking this occasion with a celebration of where we have been and who we are becoming, God’s beloved.
