From Our Team Members

“I support More Light Presbyterians, because not only are they committed to the core gospel values of welcome, inclusion, hospitality and healing, but they embody those values in who they are and how they operate. MLP is the real deal!”

Ethel Hornbeck MLP Board Member

“After the church’s ruling body first affirmed marriage equality this summer, I finally married my partner in our home church. It was a dream deferred for 28 years! I wept when it came true. With this historic vote, the Presbyterian Church welcomes not just our wedding, but our whole family into the church community.”
