A Church Where Everyone’s Welcome

In late February, the United Methodist Church is holding a Special General Conference right here in St. Louis to address how we are in ministry with LGBTQ persons. It is a global gathering of Methodists from all over the world and will have important implications for each local church.

The Gathering welcomes and values LGBTQ persons and invites them to participate in all aspects of our ministry. What binds us together at The Gathering is our desire to follow Christ together. We celebrate our diversity as a reflection of God’s creation and invite you, whatever your sexual orientation or your gender identity, to join us just as you are.

We are hosting a discussion and Q&A surrounding the Special General Conference on Tuesday, January 22 at 6:30PM at The Gathering McCausland site. Pastor Matt Miofsky will explain the legislation being considered, discuss the implications of each for both the broader church and The Gathering, and answer your questions. Childcare will be provided.
