Harmony

A nonprofit organization

Harmony (formerly GALA [Gay and Lesbian Acceptance])* is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the State of Missouri with members from around the world. We have a vision of full-participation for all Queer/LGBTQIA2S+ individuals in the Community of Christ denomination worldwide. 

We are committed to working with Community of Christ members, friends, and leaders to share information about the ministerial needs of persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities (SOGI).

WHAT WE DO

Harmony provides advocacy, education, and resources through two distinct programs that include Member Support and Congregational Support. Programming needs include:

  1. Membership Support includes peer support, mentorship, spiritual companionship, pastoral care, and more. 
  2. Congregational Support includes training materials and facilitators for the Welcoming and Affirming Congregations Program, Pride Support, and advocacy-related work at all levels of the church.

Funds are needed to ensure this important, life-saving work can continue. Please consider donating to further the mission of Harmony.



ABOUT COMMUNITY OF CHRIST

Community of Christ is an international faith community present in more than 60 countries around the world. Presently, seven nations have voted in favor of same-sex marriage and ordination of individuals in same-sex relationships.


*In 2019, GALA merged with WCN (Welcoming Community Network) to form what is now Harmony.
