As a Welcoming Congregation we welcome EVERYONE

The Unitarian Universalist Association recognizes us as a Welcoming Congregation

A Welcoming Congregation affirms and includes people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer at every level of congregational life—in worship, in program, and in social occasions—welcoming them as whole people.

As a Welcoming Congregation we pledge to:

  • Honor the lives of all people and equally affirm displays of caring and affection without regard for sexual orientation.
  • Celebrate diversity by using inclusive language and content in worship.
  • Recognize the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual,  transgender, and queer persons in all of our programs, including religious educationWelcoming Congregation logo.
  • Affirm and celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer issues and history.
  • Affirm marriage equality and conduct same-sex weddings.
  • Advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people, promoting justice, freedom, and equality in the larger society.
  • Speak out when the rights and dignity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are at stake.
