About GALA

GALA is an association of persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities affiliated with Community of Christ. Over thirty years old, this non-profit organization supports lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, their allies, family and friends. We celebrate our diversity and envision full participation for all in the life and ministry of the church.

We are a grass-roots organization committed to proclaiming Jesus Christ, affirming the worth of all persons and acting in response to God’s transforming love.

GALA offers dual ministries of sanctuary and transformation. Our regional and international retreats offer safety for telling our sacred stories in the confidential environment which promotes acceptance, healing, and spiritual wholeness.

We are committed to working with the Community of Christ members and leaders to build bridges of understanding and share information about the ministerial needs for persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

We publish a newsletter at least quarterly, support regional retreats and workshops and sponsor an annual International Retreat. GALA is a recognized non-profit corporation. Your contributions are needed, appreciated, and tax deductible. Please use the attached form to become a member, make a contribution or be added to our email list.
