Its website states that “our welcome knows no boundaries of age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic condition, physical or mental ability.”
But it has an important caveat in its FAQ:
Does this mean we agree to gay weddings in our building?
Not automatically, although this is one question we’ll need to consider as we determine how to live out our commitment to welcoming all of God’s beloved children. Even though the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled gay marriages are legal in every state, the UMC Book of Discipline still prohibits them from being held in United Methodist Church facilities. Many of the congregations who have affiliated with RMN [Reconciling Ministries Network] still abide by that prohibition.
Although the language could be clearer, Community United Methodist Church’s website does state that there are potential policy restrictions for LGBTQ people when it comes to officiating weddings.
