Although we like to think of our church as friendly and welcoming to all, there was a time when we weren't. You've come a long way, baby! Join Tom on Pride Sunday as we recall the struggle and the achievement of West Shore becoming a congregation that openly welcomes the full participation of our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members and friends. Be proud and celebrate that each of you has been a catalyst for change in the life of our congregation. Can we continue to strive for the achievement in what lies ahead? Perhaps? The quest for Marriage Equality?
Remember to wear all white or white and black, and join West Shore on the front lawn of the church (weather permitting) for a "wedding-reception" to celebrate the hope that one day all persons can be legally married. If you have a wedding dress or tuxedo and want to wear it--do so! The media has been invited to attend this event. It will be held immediately following this service (approximately 11:30) with cake and punch. See you there!
