The NW Washington Synod has PRIDE!
We are proud to be a Reconciling in Christ synod and there are many opportunities for you and your church to join in and celebrate this month.
FIRST - be sure to check out all the amazing resources from our partners at Reconciling Works - worship service, prayers to share, swag and t-shirts, displays, etc. Learn more here: https://www.reconcilingworks.org/resources/pride/
Seattle PRIDE Parade - We will be marching in the Seattle PRIDE parade again on Sunday, June 25th. If there are folks in your congregation who would like to march with us, we ask that you find someone in your congregation to be a contact person who will keep track of those from your congregations who would like to march. The deadline for registering to march in the Seattle PRIDE Parade is June 7. To register, email the contact listed below with your group info!
Additional Events Around the Synod – Though the Seattle PRIDE Parade is well-known in this area, there are several different PRIDE events happening throughout June (and even July) across our Synod!
PRIDE events with a Lutheran Contact - reach out to them to join the march:
More events - no contact identified, if YOU would like to form a group, contact the synod office!
PRIDE T-shirts! This year, we will be ordering and selling NWWA PRIDE t-shirts! That way, wherever and whenever you are involved in a PRIDE event near you, you can represent your church and our synod. Cost is $15 per shirt and all proceeds will go to the synod LGBTQIA+ Ministry Fund. Orders must be in by June 7th to guarantee a shirt! Order shirts for your group HERE!
