Foundry United Methodist Church has joined a growing grassroots movement within the United Methodist church to change the Book of Discipline , the denominational book of policies, that includes a statement prohibiting churches and clergy from performing marriage ceremonies for gay and lesbian couples. As a church dedicated to full inclusion and equality of all people, Foundry is very excited to announce its “Opening Doors to Equality” campaign, which seeks to update the Book of Discipline by connecting United Methodists across the country with personal and moving stories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) United Methodists and their allies.
