Lake Tahoe United Methodist Church is a Reconciling Ministry
Our church family commits to the Foundational Reconciling Ministries Statement: "We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more. We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed.” At Lake Tahoe United Methodist Church and Retreat Center, ALL are welcome!
