Reconciling Ministries Team: A ministry team of laity and clergy in the Belmont UMC community who plan and implement local church and community programs and events focused on strengthening our welcome to and inclusion of all people, especially those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning, and to their families and friends. If you would like to know more about this Team, contact Pam Hawkins.
Kairos Sunday School class: A reconciling class open to people of all ages, races, sexual orientations, and backgrounds who feel “the fierce urgency now” (M.L. King, Jr.) in striving for the Kingdom of God and God’s righteousness. As a covenantal community, we are committed to gathering faithfully in hospitable fellowship, practicing means of grace, studying the scriptures, reflecting theologically on the social issues of our time, serving the “least of these,” working for justice, and holding one another accountable to following Jesus in our everyday lives. Sundays, 9:15 – 10:15, Outreach Center, Room 5.
Annual Community Film Viewing: Each year in the spring, a film (documentary or other) related to or focusing on the LGBTQ community is selected and co-sponsored by the Reconciling Ministries Team and Kairos Sunday School class of Belmont United Methodist Church, along with the Nashville Area Reconciling Ministry network. These films are always open to the public and usually include a panel discussion following the viewing. In 2013, the film date is Sunday, March 3 and the film selected is Prayers for Bobby.
