Our church family is diverse in age, marital status, sexual identity, theological outlook and political perspective, but we are united in belief that a church that attempts to experience the love of God within its community must also be a church that is socially conscious and politically involved. That sometimes leads to controversy and discomfort; but we believe that relevance to human life is more important than a “comfortable pew.”

Roland Park Presbyterian Church has a long history of LGBTQIA+ inclusion, support and advocacy. It was a natural part of our evolution to become a More Light Presbyterian Church in order to more publicly claim our value of inclusivity and make it a core part of our congregational identity. We are proud to join this nationwide network of congregations and campus communities as we work together to realize the Kingdom of God ever more fully among us.

Second Presbyterian Church

Second Presbyterian Church in Kansas City has been affirming for several decades now. A beloved staff member, the church organist, risked his employment and standing in the church by coming out. He preempted any blow back by turning in his resignation at that time to which the Session and Congregation unanimously rejected. He was loved, celebrated and it was at that time the church leadership voted to be a church that would never close its doors or its inroads to ministry leadership to anyone in the LGBTQIA community.…
