GALA envisions communities which witness that persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities have sacred worth; are fully included, celebrated, and affirmed with their chosen faith traditions.
We are dedicated to the celebration of diversity. We are committed to exploring issues of spirituality and justice through dialogue, education, and action.
The purpose of GALA is to affirm the dignity and worth of all persons without regard to gender, race, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation.
We support and encourage self actualization in an atmosphere of love, understanding, and confidentiality.
Jesus Christ, the embodiment of God’s shalom, invites all people to come and receive divine peace in the midst of the difficult questions and struggles of life.
--Doctrine & Covenants, Section 163:2a (Community of Christ)
