Spirit of Hope joined the reconciling movement in October, 2005. Since then, we have hosted outreach events for the church and the community such as concerts, speakers, and movies with LGBTQ themes. Members participate in PRIDE by working at the Reconciling Ministries table in Loring Park and marching in the parade. We meet regularly with representatives from other reconciling United Methodist churches to to coordinate activities. Our pastors express support for LGBTQ persons in their sermons. We proudly and tenaciously fly a rainbow flag on the highway side of our church.
