SP&SA is a Reconciling in Christ Congregation, and a member of the Reconciling Ministries Network of United Methodists. Our congregation welcomes and celebrates the diversity of God’s creation by creating a community of faith where lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals find support, affirmation and encouragement.
Along with this same focus, we are a part of the organization Methodists in New Directions (MIND), a grassroots organization of United Methodists founded in 2006 working to end our denomination’s doctrinal prejudice and institutional discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and committed to living more fully into God’s radical Welcome right now and right here. We here at SPSA have long been active members in the ongoing work Methodists in New Directions (MIND) does in our New York Annual conference. If you want to know more about MIND’s work or our congregation’s reconciling ministry please contact us.
