10:30 a.m. Worship Service
Join us in welcoming Rev. Frank Schaefer as we celebrate being a Reconciling Congregation for 32 years.
Rev. Schaefer had his ministerial credentials revoked in December 2013 after officiating his son’s same-sex wedding.
At Noon join us for a screening
of An Act of Love the documentary that
chronicles his story and the
struggle for LGBTQ equality
within the United Methodist Church.
A documentary about the trial that rocked the United Methodist Church
and the minister who risked it all for his son.
“Emotionally powerful and ultimately uplifting, this film follows the travails
of Pennsylvania minister Frank Schaefer, who gets into trouble with the
United Methodist Church when he officiates the wedding of his gay son.
Director Scott Sheppard presents a lovely portrait of a family and sensitively
explores the concerns of a mainstream church struggling to deal with
cultural shifts. It’s compelling from beginning to end.” San Francisco Chronicle
