God & the Gay Community w/ Sam Allberry

When: August 26th at 7PM (Doors at 6PM)

Where: Dolores Park Church

God & the Gay Community

As followers of Jesus, how do we engage with the complex topic of same-sex relationships, and how can we lovingly engage with people who identify as LGBTQ? What does it look like to pursue the heart of Jesus in this area and become more like Him? When it comes to this topic, we need much more than information — we need wisdom, humility, and love.

That’s why on August 26th, we are hosting a special lecture called God & the Gay Community with Sam Allberry*, exploring how Jesus sees the gay community and how the church can be a welcoming, loving, and compassionate place for all people. Following Sam’s talk, he will do an open-mic Q&A to respond to any questions you might have.
