Creating an Altar for All: Congregations

Altar for All congregations affirm the following:

We, as a United Methodist congregation, have committed to supporting and honoring same-sex marriages in the same way that we support and honor other marriages. We believe that banning same-sex marriage is inconsistent with Christ’s teaching, and the constitution of The United Methodist Church. We fully recognize and assume the risks associated with these commitments, because we are called upon by God, through Jesus Christ, to resist injustice and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves. Our sanctuary is open for all to make a commitment of love and fidelity through Christian marriage OR we have decided to faithfully close our doors to all weddings until we can perform weddings for all.

Does your congregation host same-sex weddings? Sign Altar for All!

 * denotes congregations who will not host any weddings until they are allowed to do weddings for all
