In 2014 our Church voted by a large majority to join the Reconciling Ministries Network, an organization within the UMC that promotes the inclusion of LGBT people in all aspects of the Church’s life and ministry.  We see ourselves as a progressive congregation that sincerely strives to live out the motto of our denomination:  Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.  See our statement of inclusion.  And please come join us!
