About Reconciling Sunday
Our annual Reconciling Sunday is a part of our on-going Reconciling Ministry.
It is a special time that we set aside each year to celebrate our connection with the Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Transgender community in general and more specifically with the Reconciling Ministries Network within the United Methodist Church.
