PINE IS PROUD TO BE A RECONCILING CHURCH!
In 1994 Pine UMC voted to declare itself a "Reconciling Church".
Pine UMC was the first Asian American church in the country to do so. Today there are only three other Asian American United Methodist Churches which are reconciling. As a Reconciling Church, we are a part of the larger Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN) which is a growing movement of United Methodist individuals, congregations, campus ministries, and other groups who are working toward the full participation of all people in the United Methodist Church regardless of sexual orientation. The RMN is an independent, not-for-profit organization with no official ties to the United Methodist Church. However we are a part of the United Methodist tradition of social concern and action, a justice seeking, Spirited-people. For more info, check out: http://www.rmnetwork.org
Bible Studies for LGBTQ & Allies
Come and check out the LGBTQ Bible Study we hold twice a month!
We have a great support group going, and a few have come to reconcile their faith with their sexuality through the Bible studies and fellowship.
Pride Sunday Worship
Every year Pine Church celebrates the San Francisco Gay Pride Weekend with a service to remember that is our responsibility to keep our doors open to all of God's children. It is usually held in June.
Network on Religion and Justice
Pine UMC also supports and participates in the NRJ-API-LGBT (Network on Religion and Justice for Asian Pacific Islander, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender People). NRJ is housed at the Pacific School of Religion at the Graduate Theological Union. For more info, check out: http://www.netrj.org
