Covenant Conversation: Olympia Presbytery

October 8 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us at The United Churches of Olympia on Saturday, October 8, for a time of learning, sharing, and discovering together what it means to be a church that truly welcomes all!

What does it meant to be welcoming of LGBTQIA+ people in the church … and how welcoming are we? It has been a decade since the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) approved inclusive policies on ordination and marriage — but how can our presbytery and our congregations have better conversations and take meaningful action to put our commitments into action? What is the difference between “welcoming” queer folks and really “affirming” them? Wherever you and your church are on this journey of understanding and ministry, we hope you’ll join this opportunity to connect with others and take the next steps toward a church that experiences and shows forth God’s love for all!

All are welcome at this event: Church members, pastors, elders and deacons, people in other presbyteries, even non-Presbyterians! And if you have any questions, contact Brian Ellison, CNP executive director, at [email protected] or Robin Crawford, OlyPres planning committee chair, at [email protected].
