LGBTQA Classes A Successlasse a Success
by Deb Hope - she • her • hers pronouns
The LGBTQA Welcoming Congregation Committee offered a series of four adult education classes on Saturdays in February. The topics included Pronouns and Inclusive Language, Renewing Our Welcoming Congregation Status, LGBTQ History of Lincoln, NE, and How To Be An Advocate.
The Zoom classes were well-received and led to some good discussion. The committee appreciates everyone who gave up an hour on their Saturday to help us be a more welcoming church for people from across the sexual orientation and gender identity spectrums.
If anyone was unable to attend and would like to receive the materials that were shared, contact Deb Hope at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to view the PowerPoints for these classes, please put this link in your browser:

Members Shelly, Michelle, and Heather of the LGBTQA Welcoming Committee were interviewed by Rev Sinclair for the worship service on February 28, 2021. We shared information on our renewal process as a Welcoming Committee and Congregation, as well as our own personal stories as LGBTQA individuals.

Coffeehouse Is ONLINE With Family & Friends
Join us for online gaming streamed on STEAM. We usually play for a couple of hours with a bio break halfway through.
While we are online we play Jackbox games. We own several party packs so there is a lot of variety from drawing games to trivia, and lots more. All you need in order to play is a smartphone. You log into jackbox.tv on your phone and enter the four digit code that we give you for each game. Super easy. Your second device (computer, laptop, ipad) will be where you will view the graphics of the game through the zoom room. If you haven't played before we will walk you through it.
Coffee House Game Night is co-hosted each month, on the fourth Friday of the month, by PFLAG and the LGBTQA Welcoming Committee of the Unitarian Church of Lincoln.
We do not post zoom links in pubic forums to avoid zoom-bombing. If you are seeing this event on a public page and would like to receive the zoom link, email email@example.com.
