Congratulations KBUMC & Retreat Center as a new Reconciling Church
take a look at their statement:
"Lake Tahoe UMC & Retreat Center celebrates all people as God’s children, worthy of love and grace. We embrace diversity as a gift and welcome all gender identities, ages, races, backgrounds, and sexual orientations into full inclusion in the life of the church.

We recognize our differences and do not seek to erase them, but to use them as a source of strength as we seek to follow Jesus on a journey together toward greater love, understanding, and respect. Everyone is welcome!'
