"The LGBT community needs to know that there is a familiar place to worship, and that no matter where they are on life's journey, they are welcome at Mt. Zion," said the Rev. Detra Evans, pastor of Cleveland's Mt. Zion Congregational Church UCC and participant in Cleveland Pride. "Our members love to love, and the community needs to be loved."
The United Church of Christ has a strong history of vocal support for their LGBT brothers and sisters. Last year the UCC was the largest religious group to go purple for Spirit Day.
