More Light Congregation

Church of Reconciliation was the first More Light congregation in NC. We continue to be in strong support of gender equity and inclusivity.

”Following the risen Christ, and seeking to make the Church a true community of hospitality, the mission of More Light Presbyterians is the full participation of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people of faith in the life, ministry, and witness of the Presbyterian Church (USA)."

Earth Care Congregation

 
IMG_4052.JPG

We are one of the first churches in the PCUSA to become an Earth Care Congregation (in 2010) & we have renewed each year since—including 2021.

We are pledged in Worship, Education, Facilities, & Outreach to honor “The Earth [that] is the Lord’s and all that is in it” with peace and justice.


We build together upon Noah’s covenant with God which includes humans and all creatures, and upon Christ as God’s incarnated, “in-Earthed” gift of love in this time and place by:


● organizing annual Earth Sabbaths in the Season of Creation
●organizing an annual Native American Sunday with native presenters.
We continue our study and action related to the Doctrine of Discovery; as a result we’ve worked with our Session to honor Indigenous People in our area with a land acknowledgement.
●planning educational films and Second Hours
● Members have led letter writing to leaders on important environmental issues; they provide email updates on legislative matters & other bulletin inserts offering Earth-caring tips (post-pandemic notes are included in the church’s weekly e-blasts).

WE NEED NEW HELPERS; GOD’S GOOD EARTH IS IN GREAT NEED!—
We welcome anyone, youths to elders, to join us. We believe the Spirit works among us as we share our  enthusiasms—the more diverse, the merrier.


We generally meet monthly on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. but
we welcome folks joining us just for special projects.
