As Park Hill United Methodist Church, we lament the harm and exclusion our United Methodist Church's Special General Conference 2019 has done to the LGBTQ community. See the results of the General Conference here:
We will continue to live out our diversity and inclusivity in the midst of this outcome. On Sunday morning, at 10am, we will gather together as a community in worship. A community that values ALL people and believes in the unconditional love of God for ALL people!
We will continue to live out our mission statement:
Because Christ calls us to love all people, we live our faith through discipleship, diversity, acceptance, social justice and mission.
We will continue to include ALL into the fold of our beloved community.
We will continue to live out our welcoming statement:
As an inclusive community of faith, Park Hill United Methodist Church is an open and affirming congregation, embracing diversity, service, unconditional acceptance, and the care and support of all people in the name of Jesus Christ. We invite all people to join our congregation in ministry and worship, including those of every race, ethnicity, language, age, physical or mental ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, political affiliation, socio-economic class, marital status, and faith history.
To our LGBTQ siblings,
We love you. We see you. We value you. You are important.
