GAY/STRAIGHT ALLIANCE

Our focus is on how we can create safe havens for LGBT youth in the community.  The Alliance
will continue community resource and education events like movies, and talks.      

Everyone is welcome, please look for future meeting notices!

If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize
the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so we weave a less arbitrary social
fabric,  one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.

The Mary Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church Gay/Straight Alliance was formed in March 2004 with the
goal of letting people know that Mary Taylor is a church where everyone is welcome!  Churches that are
welcoming call themselves any one or a combination of the following; Inclusive, Welcoming, Open and Affirming,
or Reconciling.  While Reconciling is the chosen term of most Methodists, all of these descriptions mentioned are
positive and meaningful to those searching for a place to worship.

Mary Taylor Memorial UMC is affiliated with The Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN). RMN is a national
network of United Methodists advocating for the full inclusion of persons of all sexual orientations and gender
identities into the life of the church. Founded in 1984, RMN consists of 195 United Methodist congregations, 26
campus ministries, and 20 Reconciling Communities and over 18,000 individuals.
