DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

IMG-5090.jpg

Over the past decade, PMC has heard the call to intentionally welcome and affirm LGBTQ people in its midst, and continues to value racial and other diversities in our felllowship

At Pittsburgh Mennonite Church, we recognize the sacred worth and dignity of all people and celebrate the image of God manifested in the mosaic of our community.  We are enriched by diversity in race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, physical and mental health, education, economic standing, and marital status.  These beautiful manifestations of difference stand as a call to be in relationship with each other, never an excuse to limit membership or interrupt fellowship in church.  God has welcomed us all.

Relational Commitment

In worship and fellowship we open ourselves to God’s love and seek to move with God toward hope and healing.  For this to happen as we sing, listen, and share thoughts and life together in fellowship, we commit to: 

  • Give and receive grace

  • Exercise compassion

  • Listen with intent to understand 

  • Speak the truth in love

Marriage at PMC

All couples, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, who desire to be married are welcome to discern and make that commitment at PMC. Couples pursuing marriage will work with the pastor to prepare for it.
