Moving Forward

First Thursday of the month, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Coordinator: Betsy Hudson |

Moving Forward, in its mission to affirm and support our LGBTQ siblings in Christ, delivered reusable cloth masks and cleaning supplies to SMYAL, a transitional housing program for LGBTQ youth in Washington, DC. Last year, we gave the 20+ residents warm clothing to get through the cold winter, but this year, protecting the youth from COVID-19 was their primary concern.

This diverse group meets monthly, and is open to all. Believing Jesus teaches us to “Love one another,” we affirm and support our LGBTQ brothers and sisters, as one in the Body of Christ. Our mission is to stand for equality for all without exception, while maintaining open discussion within the United Methodist Church. We share joys and concerns, prayer time, and discuss and plan proactive ways to live out our mission.
