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

We are a Welcoming Congregation (UUA) and Open and Affirming (UCC), and proudly sport rainbow flags on our front door and our newsletter.

Jesus taught a radical message of love and acceptance, a message of the intrinsic value and dignity of every person... Peoples Church reflects – as best we can – the radical message that Jesus taught, and creates space for you to explore your spirituality and your understanding of your role in the world.
