Sacred Worth Group

One of the newest groups at SPUMC (we began meeting in May of 2019), Sacred Worth is a safe space for LGBTQ+ persons, their families and allies who want to keep the conversation alive about how we can become a more welcoming church for ALL God’s children here at SPUMC. We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the Month at 7pm in the Parlor. You are invited to join us as we share stories, connections, resources, pain and hope together.

Recent gatherings have included:

  • Participants telling their own stories of living as an LGBTQ+ person or being the parent of an LGBTQ+ son or daughter in the church
  • Guest speaker Rev. Dr. Frank Trotter sharing his testimony of being a gay, pastor who served UMC congregations for 40 years and now does work for the Reconciling Ministries Network
  • Watching and discussing the film, “For the Bible Tells Me So,” which explores the struggle and the hope within families and churches of accepting and supporting LGBTQ+ persons over the last 25 years

Contact Rev. Ron if you’d like to know more about the group.
