Purpose of the Coalition

Pride Flag.

The Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches is a collaboration of more than 80 churches and other ministries in the Chicago metropolitan area which welcome and affirm people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We have two goals:

  • To spread the message of our members' LGBTQ-inclusion across the Chicago metropolitan area, mindful that a positive message about sexual and family diversity is a 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 faithful welcome.

Mission Statement

God calls Broadway United Methodist Church to be a faith community embracing the diversity of our Chicago neighborhood and larger community. We welcome all persons—celebrating the human family's God-given diversity of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, and physical or mental capabilities. We also welcome persons regardless of social and economical class and faith background. At Broadway we are accepted into God's nurturing family, which invites us into spiritual growth through worship, study, mission, and social action. We are grateful for the opportunities God gives us to experience the love of Christ.

Our Commitments

Broadway is committed to living into its declaration as an anti-racist community, celebrates LGBTQ persons, and is committed to practicing Marriage Equality—see our website for more detail, or talk with the pastor.
