St. Stephen United Methodist Church denounces the massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando. We weep with those who have lost loved ones in this heinous hate crime against an establishment that catered to LGBTQI customers. We categorically reject all theologies and philosophies that hold our LGBTQI sisters and brother to be less than the people of sacred worth which the United Methodist Church officially holds them to be. We will continue to stand openly and faithfully with the LGBTQI community, which includes our church members, their families and friends. We pledge to do our utmost to work for the protection of their civil rights and their lives.
ALL are welcome at St. Stephen UMC. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please share this commitment with your social media connections and with all you meet.
