The Mary Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church
Gay/Straight Alliance was formed in March 2004 with the
goal of letting people know that Mary Taylor is a church
where everyone is welcome! Churches that are welcoming
call themselves any one or a combination of the following;
Inclusive, Welcoming, Open and Affirming, or Reconciling.
While Reconciling is the chosen term of most Methodists, all
of these descriptions mentioned are positive and meaningful
to those searching for a place to worship.
Mary Taylor Memorial UMC is affiliated with The Reconciling
Ministries Network (RMN). RMN is a national network of
United Methodists advocating for the full inclusion of
persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities into
the life of the church. Founded in 1984, RMN consists of 195
United Methodist congregations, 26 campus ministries, and
20 Reconciling Communities and over 18,000 individuals.

religious intolerance; based on the book of the same title by Leroy Aarons. This touching story gives people an insight on gay
rights and is suitable for teens through adults.
