ministries in the Chicago metropolitan area which welcome and affirm people of all sexual orientations

gift to all people.
- To connect the leaders, members, and guests of our partner churches for fellowship and education, enabling support and resource-sharing for the practices of

Our 2020 Pride Video
The 2020 Pride Video.
We created a video montage for Pride 2020. We invited all of our member congregations to submit a short video greeting to

unusual Pride season.
