2LGBTQIA+ Inclusion at The Road

 

The Road community is committed to seeing, knowing and being God's love everywhere we are. This includes our siblings in the 2LGBTQIA+ community.  We mean it. You, your story, and your embodied identity belong here and are welcome to participate in the life of the community as we follow the path of Jesus together.

 

At The Road Church, our hope and encouragement for human relationships, intimate and otherwise, is founded on relationship with a reconciling God. We follow Jesus here. It is Jesus' character and example that shapes our understanding of God's design for healthy, life-giving relationships.  

We also acknowledge that we are part of a denomination that is in the middle of the conversation about human sexuality, and whose members hold many divergent and in-process views on specific issues, including the affirmation of same-sex marriage. 2LGBTQIA+ people are welcome and encouraged to participate in our local congregation including baptism, communion and volunteer roles (hospitality, kids' ministry, music, leadership team) but our pastors cannot perform same-sex weddings and have them officially recognized by the denomination at this time.

 

For further conversation and clarification about this, please do not hesitate to contact one of our pastors, Jacqui or Rich. See Pastor Rich's video responses to the CRCNA Human Sexuality Report here
