RECONCILING MINISTRIES  (LGBTQ)

At Campbell UMC, your friendship is valued and safeguarded.  You are accepted for who you are.  We consider ourselves all one church family, every leaf on the tree!
Being a Reconciling Congregation means we welcome all persons as Christ did regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, physical or mental health ability, family status, or financial circumstances.  We want all people, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons and their families to feel welcome here and part of our family.

Campbell UMC is a member of the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN).  Along with the RMN, we affirm the vision of the Methodist Church to be one of Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.  Campbell UMC is dedicated to working with RMN, Love Your Neighbor Coalition, and other organizations at the UMC General Conference to change the official UMC stance to include LGBTQ clergy and candidates, and support (as well as perform the ceremonies of) marriage for all people.
Our vision is consistent with the mission statement of The United Methodist Church “to make disciples of Jesus Christ” and the direction of the Council of Bishops which adds “for the transformation of the world”.
As Reconciling United Methodists we can say “We are United Methodists of all sexual orientations and gender identities making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
