Reconciling In Christ (RIC)

Our Commitment

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female” (Galatians 3:28). Christ has made us one.  People of all sexual orientations and gender identities share the worth that comes from being unique individuals created by God.  Christ the Servant Lutheran Church acknowledges this reconciliation and welcomes all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.  

Being a Reconciling in Christ or RIC congregation means that we at Christ the Servant share in God’s love for all people. Each of us is a unique creation made in the image of God.  We celebrate and give thanks for the many diverse gifts that God has bestowed on us.  Differences are cherished and celebrated--not downplayed and swept under the rug.   

Committing to being an RIC congregation also means that we acknowledge the pain that Christianity has caused marginalized communities, especially LGBTQIA people. That means that we are committed to being part of the solution rather than continuing the problem. Whether you have had good or poor experiences with the church in the past, Christ the Servant Lutheran Church is committed to making sure you know the love of God and the love of a faithful supportive community. 


It's in our Bones.

For over 50 years, we’ve centered our lives around the welcoming, saving, serving love of Jesus. If that sounds like something you want to be a part of, please, come and see. We're a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregation of the Greater Milwaukee Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We invite you to join with us, as through Christ, we joyfully and inclusively love and serve our community.
