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.

Other Information

Lake View Presbyterian Church is a More Light Church. More Light Presbyterians seek the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people of faith in the life, ministry and witness of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Lake View Presbyterian Church is called in this time and place to proclaim the love and word of God and put them into action. To this end, we seek: to provide a worship environment and an educational forum where all members of the community can come for spiritual revitalization and guidance; to be a catalyst for change in our community that enables God's purpose; to nurture and sustain one another as we strive to lead lives consistent with the good news of the gospel made known to us in Jesus Christ.
