Formal Congregational Meeting on
Sunday, April 6th 2014

with the specific purpose of inviting the congregation to vote on publicly affirming lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, welcoming them through our Covenant to the life and ministry of our church!  There is also a clear consensus from the Cottage meetings that the Covenant should additionally explicitly address other groups that have experienced societal or institutional discrimination or exclusion.
