St. John’s United Methodist Church in Lubbock to Hold Marriage Equality Celebration

St. John’s UMC, Facebook

One of the older church congregations in Lubbock is holding a celebration, supporting the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision concerning same-sex marriage.

St. John’s United Methodist Church will hold a ‘Celebration of Marriage Equality’ tonight (June 26) at 7 p.m.

St. John’s UMC admits their policy of supporting same-sex marriages has been against the official policy of the United Methodist Church.

St. John’s UMC officials state they have been committed to the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people since the adoption of the Statement of Reconciliation in 1998, saying in part: “We celebrate our diversity and recognize the sacred worth of all persons regardless of sexual orientation…”

“Today’s decision by the court reflects the continuing evolution of society toward the acceptance of LGBT people,” said Kevin Young, senior pastor. “As people of faith, we see that evolution as the work of God. For too long the church has been in the business of judgment and exclusion. However, we believe we are called to love and welcome all people, and events like tonight’s gathering are just one of the many ways we try to live out that mission.”
