On November 6, 2016 our congregation voted to become a Welcoming Congregation. We have worked hard to make sure lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are full members of our faith communities. Being welcoming means practicing radical hospitality striving for radical inclusion. It means we strive to honor every part of our identities, backgrounds, and experiences. Part of this process was amending our by-laws with an non-discrimination clause.
II. 5. This congregation affirms and promotes the full participation of all persons in all our activities and endeavors including membership, programming, hiring practices, and the calling of religious professionals, without regard to race, color, gender or gender expression, physical or mental challenge, affectional or sexual orientation, class or national origin.
