As a leader in your congregation, we invite you to create opportunities for your congregants to be in dialogue about issues that impact people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ). Please check all the commitments that you feel comfortable agreeing with to move forward in your congregation, including a pledge to become "an inclusive congregation."
That process is sometimes complicated by denominations that restrict the level of inclusiveness an individual congregation is allowed. If you would like to begin an intentional discernment process and become an inclusive congregation, please have the appropriate leader of your church sign and agree to the commitments below. If you are restricted in becoming fully inclusive because of denominational polity, but would like to be in dialogue around LGBTQ-inclusion issues, you can still pledge to be as inclusive as possible with your denomination.
