I think UPC does a really great job of intentionally being involved in activities that do make people feel welcome, especially from the LGBT community. I feel UPC values my perspective and spiritual journey as a gay person.

We believe that membership in More Light Presbyterians is consistent with UPC’s mission which states that we seek “…creatively –through nurture, education, worship and community outreach –to sustain an inclusive compassionate family of faith; it seeks to promote spiritual growth by awakening souls to God’s infinite mercy embodied in the reconciling love of Christ.” UPC has long be an advocate in our Presbytery and in the national church for shedding more light on the ways our denomination can more fully reflect the truth of God’s expansive love, particularly through our work toward ordination and marriage rights.…

Our journey began in earnest when one of our elders who was in high school asked the other members of the session to consider joining the More Light Network.

Welcome to Westminster Presbyterian Church
Westminster strives to be an “Intentionally Inclusive” community of believers and seekers, following the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Through worship, study, and acts of compassion aimed at peacemaking, we seek to bring about God’s kin-dom in how we express our faith.

At Westminster, we emphasize a “progressive” expression of Christianity that values:

  • intellectual integrity in matters of faith
  • acceptance of all people regardless of ethnicity, creed, age, cultural background, gender, or sexual orientation
  • openness toward the value of other religious traditions
  • a strong commitment to social justice, peacemaking, and the care of our planet
