Numerous lesbian, gay, bisexual,  and transgender people regularly attend services, and many church members have family members who identify as LGBTQ+.  We are a progressive and socially involved congregation, and the people of UUCCWC march in the Portland Pride Parade every June,  joining with as many as 11 other UU churches in the area for a massive parade group.

Be part of a warm and loving congregation that cherishes people of all races, ethnicities, economic statuses, abilities, ages, sexual orientations, and gender identities.  Prepare to be delighted! For more information contact: Dee Cooper
