GCC speakers’ bureau – lgbtq+ inclusion

Wednesday, February 5th, 6:30 – 8:00 PM
The Glenview Community Church Speakers’ Forum is hosting a presentation and discussion on LGBTQ inclusion, in honor of the church’s 10-year anniversary of being an Open and Affirming community of faith. The presentation will explore what it means to be a welcoming and affirming community on a day-to-day basis.

Rev. Tracy Nolan, pediatric chaplain for Advocate Children’s Hospital in Park Ridge, will speak on the needs, feelings, and challenges of LGBTQ youth. A panel of transgender adults will also share their stories and perspectives on what welcoming and affirming means to them and there will be an opportunity to ask questions of the panelists. This event is free and open to the public.

An inter-generational dinner will be held at 5:30 PM before the program. An $8 donation is requested to offset the cost of the catered meal. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Rev. Hartung.
