LGBTQ Welcoming Church Process (2012-13)

In 2012 St. Alban's engaged in a process to decide if we wanted to be identified as a "Welcoming Church" in the sense of actively supporting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered people in Christian life and ministry. To be a Welcoming Church means that our congregation renounces the vilification of LGBTQ people, asks for forgiveness for the harm we have committed, and seeks redemption by welcoming, respecting, and supporting our LGBTQ brothers and sisters. To that end we created a year-long program which culminated in a vote by the whole congregation at the regular Annual Meeting in January 2013. The vote was unanimous to become a Welcoming Church.
