If you would’ve asked that question five years ago, you would’ve received a solid no. But today, since the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 2015 granting marriage equality to gays and lesbians, the issue of the LGBTQ community within conservative churches and colleges is being explored.
To advance that conversation, Rose City Church in Pasadena, The Open Door (TOD) and Rosebud Coffee are hosting a panel conversation entitled: “Gays And The Church: Open Door Or Locked Out?” on Friday, Feb. 22, 7 p.m – 9 p.m. at Rosebud Coffee, 2302 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
The members TOD will share their experiences about being part of an LGBTQ Christian support group ministry in contrast to how they have been treated by other churches.
This free event is open to all in the hope that we can further the conversation on how churches can open their doors to the LGBTQ community. Coffee, tea and other delicious beverages will be available for purchase.
