We are an Open and Affirming Church.  This means that our faith community

* is a safe space for open and honest conversation about human sexuality and gender  identity. 

* encourages LGBTQ members to serve in lay and ordained leadership. 

* celebrates same-sex weddings.

* advocates for LGBTQ civil rights and defends their LGBTQ neighbors when their dignity or       safety are threatened. 

* advertises that it is a safe place for LGBTQ and questioning youth. 

* is willing to host meetings of support groups like Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays.

* and supports participation in the local LGBTQ Pride Parade. 


In addition, the congregation is a member of the Supportive Communities Network (SCN), a program of the Brethren Mennonite Council for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Interests.
