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

Immanuel is a Reconciling in Christ Congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Our "Affirmation of Welcome": "We welcome people of every age and size, color and culture, every sexual orientation and gender identity, socio-economic status and marital status, every ability and challenge. We welcome believers and questioners, and questioning believers."
Our worship is steeped in the ancient liturgical tradition of the church, with amazing music, but it is liturgy that is done comfortably and with joy. We have a passion for social justice, particularly surrounding ministries that feed people (both physically and spiritually). We invite you to worship and work with us!
