The goal of FPCe’s More Light LGBTQ+ Outreach Committee is to serve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people and their families and friends — both those who are members of the FPCe congregation and those in the community at large.

Organized in 2014, the More Light Committee grew out of the late Rev. Don Steele’s 2013 More Light Sunday sermon that called on FPCe to find ways to educate people both within the congregation and in the community at large about LGBTQ+ issues.

This Web page is one of the ways FPCe’s More Light committee would like to serve the Tri-Cities LGBTQ+ community. If you have any news, upcoming events, or ongoing gatherings you’d like to publicize, feel free to send the information to Jane Woodside, and we’ll do our best to spread the word.
