About the Event

Our individual identites are complex and include, among other things, culture, nationality, and vocation. Gender identity and expression are part of every person's identity. Unfortunately, many find themselves outcase and condemned for sharing their identity Understanding the expiernece and unique challenges of this community will better allow us to support them. We can take votes in Church to be "Open and Affirming" but we are also called to care, connect, support. This is an opportunity to educate, inform, and equip ourelves to care for others in ways that create lasting change. 

Summer Gomez from Penny Lane Center will serve as our faciliatator. Penny Lane Center is contracted by the Los Angeles County, Department of Mental Health to do educational workshops and training. Penny Lane Center will provide certificates affirming 6 hours of Continuing Education for those requesting. 

This is a free event focused on equipping Church members and leaders to support the LGBTQ+ community. It will not cover theological perspectives or spend time justifying why the Church loves people. If you have questions about those issues you are welcome to contact our Conference office for resources.
