The Coalition provides support and sanctuary to all our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender sisters and brothers, their families and friends; advocates for their full inclusion in church and society; and brings Christ's affirming message of love and justice for all people.
The United Church of Christ Coalition for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Concerns is officially recognized by the United Church of Christ as a related, self-created organization.
The work of The Coalition is focused on three primary areas:
Creating and supporting Open and Affirming (ONA) settings within the United Church of Christ
Supporting youth and young adults and those who work with them
But all of our work is geared to support the work of volunteers on the local level.
