Are you a member of the Reconciling Ministries of the UMC? Are you inclusive of LGBTQ+ people?
We are not an official member of the Reconciling Ministries in the UMC. We have LGBTQ+ people in our church, both who hold affirming views and those who hold more traditional views, and we are committed to loving all without reservation or agenda. All are welcome and encouraged to participate in the full life of the church, without reservation. We also recognize that throughout history the LGBTQ+ community have historically been mistreated in the church, for which we humbly repent. We hope to be a part of embodying redemptive community for all. Our primary ministry partner in this area is LOVEboldly. You can learn more about LOVEboldly here: loveboldly.net
