Notes

This church belongs to the United Methodist Church, which is a non-affirming denomination. Although its website contains affirming language in its FAQs, it is not evident that this denomination will actively resist its denomination's non-affirming policies. In fact, the church specifically states that it will "follow the denomination's Book of Discipline in regard to doctrine and practice" on the same FAQ page. Furthermore, its Wedding Reservation Form refers to the Bride and Groom specifically, assuming a heterosexual couple.

Thus, its score is Unclear: Non-Affirming.
