Who We Are

Excerpt:

"We abhor the discriminatory policies of the larger church against LGBTQ people and women. We joyfully celebrate marriage, ordination and the gifts of leadership and service in people in all our variety of sexual orientations and gender identities."

Note from church:

"Our denomination, United Methodist, prohibits marriage and ordination for LGBTQIA folks. We actively and openly oppose those policies. We are not chartered, so have freedom to not follow these policies."
