WUMC is an open and affirming congregation – we believe that every person has inherent sacred worth, whatever their gender identity or sexual expression. That’s why it’s important for us to celebrate Seattle Pride, which is coming up on Sunday, June 25, and we’d like you to join us!
Our congregation has been involved with Seattle’s Pride Parade and PrideFest for over 20 years. We join with other local United Methodists to march in the parade and host a hospitality booth with cookies, drinks, and expressions of love for people celebrating Pride with us.
Nancy Speer and the rest of the Pride Team would love to have you join in and be a part of this year’s Pride festivities. There are lots of opportunities to be involved – you can:
- March in the parade on June 25
- Staff the PrideFest booth
- Help behind-the-scenes by doing things like building the balloon arch or preparing signs
- Donating cookies for the booth
- And more!
Plus, you can update your wardrobe with a Pride T-shirt by filling out an order form at the church on Sunday mornings. Cost for shirts is $20-$22.
