The Love Chapter supports LGBTQ+ people and allies

  • Meets the second Monday each month at 6:30 pm
  • At Second Baptist Church's Community Room
  • For LGBTQ+ people, their parents, families, friends, and allies.

This new group, The Love Chapter, is designed to provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ people and allies to gather, to discuss, and to receive encouragement and support. Our goal is that people feel affirmed in who they are and encouraged on their life's journey.

Beyond affirmation, our hope is that questions can be asked and explored.  We know that many folks experiencing the "coming out" of a loved one have questions and need encouragement to be the most supportive they can be. It is a journey not only for the LGBTQ person, but also for his or her parents, siblings, and friends as well. There are all sorts of questions that arise about the use of language, the ways to be supportive, and how to respond to homophobic or hateful responses.

It is our hope that both church folks and people from the community will come and experience the camaraderie as we support and encourage each other.
