What is the Welcoming Congregation?
The Welcoming Congregation Program is a completely volunteer program for congregations who feel a need to become more inclusive towards Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Queer or Intersexed (LGBTQI) people. It consists of a series of workshops developed by the UUA. The goal of the workshops is to reduce prejudice by increasing understanding and acceptance among people of different sexual orientations. Some workshop titles:
Many congregations offer the workshop series several consecutive times as an adult religious education curriculum open to all members and friends. Some congregations [Ours was one] form a Welcoming Congregation Task Force to sponsor the workshop series (and later the entire program). Other congregations sponsor the workshop series through their Interweave chapters. In either case, those who have experienced the curriculum make the best workshop leaders.
The UUFSC became an official Welcoming Congregation in June 2006.
