In October 2014 Living Spirit proudly became the 9th United Church in Calgary to become an Affirming Congregation which means that we went through a lengthy process of learning and discussion before voting to become a congregation that affirms all people regardless of socio-economic status, background, education, religion, health, ability, race, age, gender identity and sexual orientation. While many members of the LSU congregation identify as straight, several members identify as Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual and Trans people. We are all in this together. We believe God loves and cherishes everything God has created and so we strive to love everyone, including ourselves, with compassion as Jesus loved.
On April 19th, 2016 Calgary Presbytery of the United Church of Calgary voted to become an affirming presbytery which encourages safe space for all people and perspectives.
