SP&SA is a Reconciling in Christ Congregation, and a member of the Reconciling Ministries Network of United Methodists. Our congregation welcomes and celebrates the diversity of God’s creation by creating a community of faith where lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals find support and encouragement.
Methodist Students and Young Adults for an All-Inclusive Church (MoSAIC) is an organization made up of college students, young adults, and seminarians working to make the United Methodist Church an all-inclusive congregation. The group primarily focuses on advocacy work at General, Annual, and Jurisdictional Conferences, asking the church to adopt more inclusive language and policies.
The MoSAIC group at SP&SA works closely with the Young Adult and Reconciling Ministries Committees and with other like-minded young adults from seminaries, universities, and churches of all denominations throughout the New York City area and across the country.
Methodists in New Directions (MIND) is the New York chapter of RMN and SP&SA is an integral part of this organization. If you want to know more about MIND’s work or our congregation’s reconciling work, Ms. Charlotte Patton, chair of RMN at SP&SA for more information.
