The Grosse Pointe Unitarian Church, the only church located within the borders of the city of Grosse Pointe, voted on March 6 to be recognized as a “welcoming congregation.” This designation defines the church as openly welcoming all people regardless of their sexual orientation.
The church’s bylaws will now have an additional paragraph with fully inclusive language: “The congregation declares and affirms its special responsibility to promote the full participation of persons in all of its endeavors without regard to race, color, gender, disability, affectional or sexual orientation, age, or national origin.”
The church is located at 17150 Maumee in Grosse Pointe. Sunday services begin at 10:30a.m.
