The Reconciling Ministries Team (RM Team) at Saint John's was formed in November 2010 by a group of Saint John’s members who wanted to raise awareness about Reconciling Ministries at our church. The RM Team became a recognized church committee (affiliated with Intentional Faith Development committee) by church council vote in 2011. We currently have seven active RM Team members and many RM Team Friends in our congregation. Interested in joining us? See contact info below.
We currently host a monthly Rainbow Potluck, usually after the late service on Second Sundays, the same day we encourage our congregation to wear rainbows to church in the form of stoles, pins and more. The rainbow stoles specifically remind us of those who have not been ordained and those who have lost ordination due to sexual orientation or gender identity. All of our rainbows are a visible and affirming welcome to the many who have historically been made to feel unwelcome at church.
