Welcoming Congregation

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) recognizes us as a Welcoming Congregation. The term “Welcoming Congregation” has a special meaning in our faith tradition. It represents our commitment to offering an abiding welcome to GLBTQ individuals and families.


Please visit the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) website for information on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer welcome and equality.
