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.

Our Vision

With God's help, we can do great things! At Lincoln Park Presbyterian Church we strive to demonstrate the open, inclusive and accepting love of Jesus Christ. We pray, sing, study and worship in old ways and new, inviting families of all sorts – singles, couples, and children – to nurture their faith in a growing and vibrant congregation. We promote God’s justice and peace in our community and in our world. We seek the call of God to the next big thing and pray mightily that we receive the gifts to heed the invitation.
