In 2021 the Church Council decided to begin the journey of CTK becoming a Reconciling in Christ congregation. Since June, a Core Team has been discussing and planning how this might happen. Reconciling in Christ is resources for guiding a congregation.

From Reconciling Works: Lutherans for Full Participation: The purpose of the Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Program is to ensure the welcome, inclusion, celebration, and advocacy for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions; work for racial equity and commit to anti-racist work and support the national program. We are Lutherans working with the recognition that racism, sexism, ageism, able-ism, heterosexism, homophobia, and all the other artificial distinctions that seek to raise one group into privilege and preference over another, conspire together to diminish our world and church. Reconciliation is a fundamental value; it is what the Apostle Paul says we are all called to do. Through our Reconciling in Christ Program, ministries, resources, events and alliances, ReconcilingWorks builds community for worship, education and support; fosters welcome and acceptance in all Lutheran settings; and advocates for the ecclesial changes necessary to ensure full participation in all sacraments, inclusive liturgical resources, and ministries of the Church, inviting all people into Gospel lives of authenticity, integrity, and wholeness.            

The CTK Core Team is Chris Gabel, Mike Haddox (ex officio), Susan Hanson, Eddie Holmvig-Johnson, Suzan Pederson and Pastor Chris Hagen.
