Whoever you are, we welcome you!

Wherever you come from, we welcome you!

Whomever you love, we welcome you! by Hal Walker, UU singer/songwriter

These words greet you when you come in our door, we sometimes sing them at the start of the service and we strive to live by them. 

We are a Welcoming Congregation, recognized by the Unitarian Universalist Association. This means we affirm and include people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and asexual at every level of congregational life —in worship, in program, and in social occasions— welcoming them as whole people.

As a Welcoming Congregation we have pledged 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.
  • Incorporate an understanding of the experience of lesbian, gay, bisexual,  transgender, queer, and asexual persons throughout all of our programs, including religious education.
  • Affirm and celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and asexual issues and history.
  • Affirm marriage equality and conduct same-sex weddings.
  • Advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and asexual people, promoting justice, freedom, and equality in the larger society. We speak out when the rights and dignity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and asexual people are at stake.Our members have many different gender identities and sexual orientations.

If you identify as LGTBQIA+, you and your family are most welcome here.
