If your congregation received its Welcoming Congregation recognition more than five year ago, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Ministries (LGBTQ Ministries) strongly recommends that your congregation official renews its Welcoming Congregation designation. The LGBTQ world is changing too fast to stay abreast of how to be welcoming and inclusive without an intentional effort on behalf of your congregation. To honor your original pledge, it’s essential that new people in the congregation understand your congregation’s commitment to this work and that people who were originally involved in the program, learn about the current needs and concerns of LGBTQ people.
To apply for renewal of your Welcoming Congregation status, any member of your congregation may send LGBTQ Ministries the following information:
Send your application to: lgbtq @ uua.org. Please allow one month for review.
Upon renewal, you will receive a formal letter of renewal and two new Welcoming Congregation posters.
For more information contact lgbtq @ uua.org.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations.
Please consider making a donation today.
