Support Meetings

Starting July 6, 2021, in-person support meetings resume with the following guidelines:

 
The church asks the following for our meetings:
  • Please be masked upon entering and leaving the building.
  • Please be masked when using the restroom or moving about the building.
  • Vaccinated individuals do not need to be masked during the meeting.
  • Unvaccinated individuals should wear a mask at all times.
  • No food or drink (as we meet in a chapel).
 
Masks are available if you do not have one with you.  Help yourself.
 
Kindly comply with these guidelines so that we can continue to meet in person.
We thank you for your cooperation.

Support meetings are most men's first contact with us, and have been a lifeline for many. No membership is required to participate in support meetings; you are welcome any evening we meet.

 

Our meetings provide a safe, confidential, and welcoming forum for talking about our issues, including coming out, divorce, sexuality, and relationships with children, partners, and spouses (current or ex). You are free to join in the discussion or just observe, whatever feels most comfortable. Occasionally, our meetings also include speakers on topics of interest for a portion of the meeting.

 

The meeting is structured around telling our own experiences as they relate to issues any of us brings up. Meetings are moderated by our president, a gay father himself.

 

After the support meetings, many of us continue the conversation over beverages or late dinner at a local pub.
