Lake View Presby Hosts Pride Worship

We at Lake View Presbyterian Church were pleased to host the CCWC Pride Service again this year. We celebrate with our wider community the great strides made recently.

In our own denomination (PCUSA) this year we passed Marriage Equality legislation. We celebrated a few years back when our ordination standards were liberated from polity standards stranded in another era.

Oh, for the day when all our faith communities can celebrate with pride the richness we know to be true when we come together with a love as broad and radically inclusive as God's own!

Youth from all over the Chicagoland area come to be accepted as they are, to share a meal, play cards, watch a movie, or just hang out.
