Living the Welcoming Congregation, sometimes known as “Welcoming Congregation 2” or “200-level Welcoming Congregation” is a curriculum that was developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association in 2004 as one possible next step that congregations can take after becoming recognized as a Welcoming Congregation.
Many congregations utilize this series of workshops after becoming recognized or as part of a Welcoming Congregation refresher program. It is no longer required that a congregation be recognized as a Welcoming Congregation before using this curriculum, but it is recommended that congregations and participants using Living the Welcoming Congregation already have a basic understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer identities and issues and that they have already made a commitment to being a welcoming space for individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
For more information and guidance on continuing your Welcoming Congregation commitment, please see Ways to Deepen Your Congregation's Welcome and our refresher program guidance.
