Reconciling Church

LGUMC is a reconciling church, which welcomes all persons as Christ did regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, physical or mental health, family status, or financial circumstances.  We became a reconciling church in April 1995; believing that all persons are recipients of God’s grace, that discrimination has no place in the church and that followers of Jesus Christ must move beyond judgment to love.  This inclusive gospel witness is still at the heart of our mission as a church.

The Church Council and pastoral staff of LGUMC reject decisions by the United Methodist General Conference that exclude and harm our lesbian, gay, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer brothers and sisters.  We welcome ALL into full participation in the life of our congregation and invite anyone wishing to celebrate their marriage in the Spirit of Christ’s love to do so in our church facility.
