We are a Welcoming and Inclusive Congregation: Affirming LGBTQ/TGQNB Individuals and Families

Church History

In 2004 and 2005, a group of committed members formed the church’s Welcoming Congregation Committee.  Members included Judy & Bill Hepfer, Betty & Bob Murphy, Paul Davis & Mickey Selwyn.  After 18 months of work to meet the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) requirements, the congregation voted at its May 22, 2005 Annual Meeting to become a Welcoming Congregation and became certified by the UUA in 2005.
