An LGBTQ Welcoming Congregation
We are an Official Welcoming Congregation
Our congregation has a rich history of including people who identify as lesbian and gay. As the AIDS epidemic was dawning, we welcomed the Metropolitan Community Church in the East Bay to worship within our walls. When the MCC congregation disbanded, many of its members decided to stay and become part of our congregation.Since then, our leadership has always included several members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and asexual (LGBTIQQA) community.
In the past several years we have completed the Welcoming Congregation program of the Unitarian Universalist Association. We are officially a Welcoming Congregation, pledged to intentionally provide a safe and affirming climate for people who identify as LGBTIQQA to find a spiritual home.
