11/22/2017: Welcoming Congregations Survey

Click Here to Begin On Line Survey

The world can be a difficult place, and even more so for those in the LGBTQ+ community.  As a congregation, we want to ensure that we make all people feel welcome and appreciated.  We can show the community our commitment to this goal via the process of renewing our status as a LGBTQ+ Welcoming Congregation.

We ask people to take a few minutes, after the service or at home, “Welcoming Congregation Assessment of Commitments” to help the Welcoming Task Force identity our strengths and our challenges.  Additionally, please join us in Conversations with the Board, as we discuss LGBTQ+-friendly language.  We will be joined by Amanda Collins, a woman who is new to our KUUF community, and who is transgender.

Please know, as a newcomer and a member of the LGBTQ comity, I have found these efforts to be so comforting and inviting, like a beacon of hope, in a divisive era.  Thank you, for your individual ad community efforts!  —Gina Voladora
