As an Open and Affirming Congregation, we participate each year in PrideFest St. Louis with a booth offering the opportunity for LGBTQ+ people to talk about faith and to possibly find a welcoming church home in the community. This is a wonderful faith-sharing opportunity and an expression of Jesus’ hospitality.
The thing we remember is that God is already in the lives of lesbian, gay, bi, transgender, queer, and questioning people – young and old. So many of us are negotiating the journey on which we discern how we live as God’s people in the world; how we live out the love and compassion of Jesus the Christ. Our sexuality is only one part of that journey. We are all fully human, created in love of God, with gifts of life to share in God’s world. Come explore faith and life in this community of God’s people.
In 2018 Compton Heights Christian Church was part of a St. Louis Area Disciples of Christ booth at Pride downtown and we also had our own booth at Tower Grove Pride. It was a great experience; we had powerful faith conversations with the wonderful people who came to visit our booths. We hope to see you at Pride next year!
