Reconciling Works


Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Sunday

Join us and other welcoming communities nationwide to celebrate Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Sunday on Sunday, January 29 at 9:30 AM.

RIC Sunday is a time for all Welcoming Communities to celebrate, reflect and become re-energized for the work of welcome, education, advocacy and outreach. RIC Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate the witness of God's love for persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

As a Reconciling In Christ congregation, everyone who walks through our doors is WELCOME. United in Faith has weekly worship for youth and adults. We share the gospel of Jesus Christ, pray for our community, neighborhood and world, and feed the hungry and elderly. We also have a gay and straight together ministry, 12-step programs, scouting troops, etc.
