What Does it Mean to be a Reconciling Congregation?
Park Hill United Methodist Church has a proud reputation as being a congregation that values social justice. We were one of Denver’s first integrated churches, welcoming African Americans in defiance of what was going on around us in the 60’s. We have welcomed African American, Women and Korean Pastors to our mixed congregation. We make it part of our regular Mission to feed the hungry and reach out to people who are struggling. We are following the teachings of Jesus Christ.
What is a Reconciling Congregation?
A church that declares that is a Reconciling Congregation declares that it has made a commitment to being in loving Christian ministry with all people without prejudice, and to have “open hearts, open minds, and open doors.” This is a congregation that is declaring to the world that we are working toward the time when our church lives the unconditional love that Christian faith demands., and this includes the GLBTQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) Community. Reconciling Congregations align themselves with the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN) and share its guiding principles as a statement of that declaration.
