LGBTQ+ Affirming Ministries
Our church is an LGBTQ+ inclusive congregation and welcomes all God's children, no matter where you are in the journey. We are a member of the Open and Affirming Coalition (UCC), Reconciling Ministries Network (UMC), and More Light Presbyterians (PCUSA).

"We believe Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer are children of God. We believe the United Church of Hyde Park will be one of the best open and affirming congregations for everyone. Let us work together. Join us."
