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.

Welcome Statement

Evanston Friends Meeting is part of the Religious Society of Friends otherwise known as the Quakers. The Quaker way is grounded in our understanding that each of us may experience the Divine directly; each person's experience of the Divine is unique; and there is that of God in each person and in all creation. These understandings and experiences foster our growth and transformation. They also lead us to care for others near and far, and for the world. We welcome you just as you are.
