United Church of Rogers Park

A Church for all God’s people in the heart of the neighborhood

We support the FULL INCLUSION [marriage and ordination] of LGBTQIA+ and always will

We Dissent!

United Church of Rogers Park United Methodist Church abhors and laments the continued discriminatory policies of our global denomination and the continuing harm done to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex persons represented in the denomination's recent General Conference held in St. Louis.  We recommit to our position of active and prophetic DISSENT. Our ministries and mission will not be defined nor confined by our denominational affiliation.

Our resistance to injustice is a critical part of our baptismal and membership covenants, when we vow “to resist evil, injustice  and oppression in whatever form it presents itself.”   Sometimes, that evil, injustice and oppression are found within church law. Rooted in the ageless protestant movement, we vow to continue the work of reforming the church.

What does God require of us? But to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God  -  Micah 6:8
