When a congregation goes through the learning process to become welcoming and affirming of LGBTQ people, they often end up learning a lot more about themselves and other marginalized groups within their communities.
With that in mind, RfA is proud to offer* a new event-planning resource, “A Wider Welcome.” This document is a blueprint for how congregations who have done the hard work to be LGBTQ inclusive can extend that welcome and foster a learning environment for other churches in their community/classis. We invite you to take this resource and adapt it to your own congregational setting. When you hold an event to “widen the welcome,” we’d love to know about it!
