Reconciling in Christ Task Force
The Southwestern Washington Synod Council is exploring becoming Reconciling in Christ (RIC). This process includes naming what being designated RIC would mean for our Synod staff, council, and congregations, continued education, and intentional conversations within the conferences of our synod.
The next step in learning about this process is an upcoming “Building an Inclusive Church” training on February 7
at The Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd (1601 North Street SE, Olympia, WA 98501). More information on this training will be available soon.
The task force is looking to include more voices in this process. If you or someone from your congregation is interested in the RIC process for our synod and would be available for occasional Zoom online video meetings, please contact
with your name, congregation, and contact information.
