Hi Flame friends!
What is “The Flame?” We are an LGBTQ and Ally faith community for healing. We are #queerchurch. We are a place where you can bring your whole self, including your doubts and frustrations with God or the church, including your joys and celebrations.
Sometimes we gather for informal worship with a focus on celebrating diversity and building relationships. Sometimes we do other things to get to know each other better, have fun, and strengthen our bonds of community.

Check out our calendar of events for a chance to meet us and connect.

We celebrate that all gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations are gifts from God, and that we are beautifully and wonderfully made just as we are.

We bring our questions, doubts, struggles, and joys.  If you don’t believe in God, are mad at God, or just wonder how anyone could have faith, you have a place here. If your faith is solid, and your flame burns bright, or if you have questions and your flame is wavering, you have a place here.

This is a group where we work to ensure that everyone feels safe and heard.

We celebrate the beautiful diversity of God’s creation, including us!

You can help support this life-giving ministry by donating to the Oregon Synod, and designating the Flame in the note line.  Thank you!
