Marriage Policy

On Sunday, January 24, 2016, Triumphant held a Congregational Meeting to vote on the issue regarding same-sex weddings and marriages.

We as a church need to have a stated policy on this topic because the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriages are legal in July of 2015. And as the Call Committee worked diligently toward finding our next Pastor, a policy needed to be in place.

At the May 2016 Council Meeting, the Church Council discussed and approved TLC's Marriage Policy based on the results of the congregational vote: 112 against same-sex marriage, 52 for same-sex marriage.
