The Portland LGBTQ Christian Meetup Group is a group for anyone interested in getting together with fellow LGBTQ Christians from all denominations and walks of life. In today's religious and social cultures, many do not believe that one can be both Christian and gay, yet we DO EXIST and ARE THRIVING! This group seeks to support LGBTQ Christians in their walk of faith, providing friendship, community, and support as we seek to engage our faith together.
We provide a variety of opportunities to interact together through dinners, events, Bible studies and conversation groups. Online interaction and meeting with leaders of coffee/tea is also welcome.
In consideration of the social and religious tensions that many of this group's members encounter on a regular basis, and recognizing the broad diversity this group represents, all members who participate in this group understand that
1. We come from a wide variety of backgrounds and approach our faith, sexual orientation, gender, relationships, and social life differently. We seek to listen, respect, understand, learn from, and engage each other in an effort to grow together as individuals and as a community.
2. We attempt to create events that will accommodate people's schedules and transportation needs, but to further these attempts, we ask for members to also take initiative in order to help our community to grow. Members are invited to email and suggest group activities and events as well.
