We seek to be a community that welcomes and affirms all. In that spirit, on May 21, 2020, the session (governing body) of Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church moved, seconded and approved the following statement:

Following the risen Christ, and seeking to make our church a true community of hospitality, Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church works for the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people in the life, ministry, and witness of our church and society.

As a congregation we are doing the work of listening and learning so that we can fully live into this affirming statement.

 

More Light Presbyterians Exploratory Committee

Session also approved the formation of an exploratory committee to research what it would mean for SVPC to become a More Light Presbyterian Church. Five members of the congregation were appointed by the Clerk of Session and Rev. Hardy Kim served as an ex-officio member. The committee’s recommendation report has been completed and can be viewed here. It is most likely that session will be voting on the recommendation in January 2021.

Please email any questions or concerns to . Your comments will be shared confidentially with session at their January meeting.
