We are Reconciling Congregation
We welcome every person into all aspects of church life in the fullness of who they are, whether gay, straight, bisexual, cisgender, transgender, lesbian, queer, SGL, questioning or otherwise. We support marriage equality and welcome same gender loving couples to participate in marriage preparation and to get married in the church. We affirm the gifts of LGBTQ people for ministry and service at all levels of church life.
We are a multi-ethnic congregation.
We are a community that deliberately crosses lines of race and ethnicity to worship God, grow in faith, serve our neighbors and work for justice. People from Liberia, Burma, Korea, Haiti, and of course neighborhood cities worship together on Sunday. Our congregation “looks like” what we believe the Kingdom of God to be all about — a big table where we all have a seat. We are also a congregation with significant diversity in other areas, as well, including class, language, ability and age.
We are a justice-seeking, service-oriented congregation.
We are committed to ministries that strengthen our neighborhood and our city, including After School Program, Project Outreach (food pantry), Open Closet (affordable, second-hand clothing store), Nursing Home ministry, Healing Team, RI Loaves and Fishes. We work together to make Providence, RI and our world a more just and loving place.
