Unclear: Non-Affirming

Notes

This church's denomination is non-affirming. Although this church is a Reconciling Congregation and allows LGBTQ people in leadership, the website does not clearly indicate that the church will actively resist its denomination's non-affirming policies, e.g., by performing same-gender weddings. For example, its wedding policy uses language assuming the parties will be a "bride and groom." Thus, its score is Unclear: Non-Affirming.

LGBTQIA in Leadership

Kristen Mallory, the Children & Youth Minister, is married to a woman.
