As a way of continually expanding our vision of welcome and hospitality, Arlington Presbyterian is a More Light congregation, a designation that a congregation takes within the PCUSA to work for the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people in the life, ministry, and witness of the Church and society.
The vision of More Light Presbyterian’s is this:
Following the risen Christ, and seeking to make the Church a true community of hospitality, the mission of More Light Presbyterians is to work for the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people in the life, ministry and witness of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and in society.
