Reconciling in Christ
In 1989, the Metro D.C. Synod adopted an affirmation of welcome for gay and lesbian Christians, thus being recognized by ReconcilingWorks.org as a welcoming Synod to the LGTBQ+ community. In 1991, the Metro D.C. Synod assembly voted to accept and affirm homosexual persons as rostered ministers to serve in the church.
