Reconciling Ministry

Wesley has been a fully Reconciling church for many years and the Reconciling Committee has led the way in Wesley’s ongoing commitment to make our church a safe and welcoming place for LGBTQIA+ Christians of all ages. With a congregation that includes members across the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, the Reconciling Ministry is committed to supporting and affirming LGBTQIA+ Christians in both their faith and life. 

Reconciling Sunday
Transgender Awareness Sunday

Reconciling Committee sponsors an annual Reconciling Service along with a Bake Sale to raise money for the Reconciling Ministries Network.  The Reconciling Committee also sponsors a Transgender Awareness Sunday.  The Transgender Awareness Sunday makes people aware of the fact that about 5% of young adults in the U.S say their gender is different from their sex assigned at birth. The Reconciling Ministry, made up of both straight allies and queer laity, has also marched in San Francisco Pride and Silicon Valley Pride parades, provided support and guidance to other churches going through the Reconciling process, and worked with pastoral staff to provide LGBTQIA+ Bible studies.
