Streams of Justice virtual worship


Come to worship with and honor the many streams of justice for which we seek and from which we drink. LGBTQ children of God come from all races, abilities and disabilities, languages, ethnicities, socioeconomic realities, nationalities, and more. These intersecting identities enrich our community, and they also invite us to more deeply understand one another as God's fellow beloveds.

RMN is hosting a service on April 18th at 6pm MST, containing worship, music, testimony, Scripture, and more.
The service will be live-streamed on Facebook and on YouTube.

Prayers for St. Vincent


We pray for St. Vincent and the surrounding Caribbean islands that are facing the dangerous effects of ongoing volcanic activity. We pray for those whose communities have been destroyed, who are displaced from home, and for the provision of basic needs like shelter, food, water, and power.

UMCOR is coordinating with Methodist partners in the region and stands in solidarity with them during this time.
