Inclusive, Still Christian: Good News For The Journey

  • Christ Church Portland 1314 Southwest Park Avenue Portland, OR, 97201 United States (map)

This is a free ticketed event! Please grab tickets here.

So, how do we faithfully & inclusively do church? And be church? And walk with Jesus as believers on the way? We have some good news - it's not only possible, it's what God's dream is for our world.

Join us for this special event with the Gay Christian Network as we lean in to God's radical, inclusive love for all of us. #LoveWins
