A Welcoming Congregation

UUFT has been proclaimed a "Welcoming Congregation" by the Unitarian Universalist Association's Office of Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Concerns. We are the third congregation in Kansas to earn this status (others are Manhattan and Wichita).

The Welcoming Congregation Program is a completely volunteer program for congregations that see a need to become more inclusive towards bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people. It consists of a series of workshops developed by the UUA. The goal of the workshops is to reduce prejudice by increasing understanding and acceptance among people of different sexual orientations.
