Unitarian Church hosts pride interfaith worship service

The Pride Inter-Faith Coalition of Pittsburgh will hold a pride interfaith community worship service June 18, beginning at 7:30pm, at the First Unitarian Church, located at Morewood at Ellsworth avenues in Shadyside.

“We have planned this service to affirm and celebrate the rich diversity within our Pittsburgh lesbian, transgender, bisexual and gay community,” said the Rev. Roberta Dunn, minister of Metropolitan Community Church and coalition cochair.

The service will be followed with a reception at 8:30pm in the Undercroft Gallery, located below the church sanctuary. Refreshments will be served.

Member organizations of the Inter-Faith Coalition participating in the service include Affirmation, Bet Tikvah, Dignity, Gay Heart Spirit Circle, Interweave, Lutherans Concerned, MCC, Presbyterians for Lesbian and Gay Concerns and Sufi Order.

The First Unitarian Church was recently declared a “welcoming congregation” to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people.
