Saturday, Oct 1 from Noon to 6:00pm
LGBT Center, 208 West 13th Street, New York NY 10011
Is your parish welcoming and affirming of LGBT persons? Are you as welcoming and affirming as you would like to be? Many unchurched lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender [LGBT] people in your community are spiritually searching. They are looking for a faith community where they will be welcomed and affirmed as beloved children of God. You can encourage them to visit and join your parish by becoming a Believe Out Loud Episcopal Congregation. An Integrity Believe Out Loud Episcopal Congregation is a mission or parish of our denomination that publicly welcomes and affirms LGBT people and that has completed a simple 3 step process.
Believe Out Loud is a program being used by 16 different main-line denominations as a means of learning to become more welcoming and affirming of LGBT people. Come and learn how your parish can become an Integrity Believe Out Loud Episcopal Congregation.
The workshop is free to Integrity members, there is a small fee for non-members to cover costs.
