United Church of Christ Judd Street and Central Union are partnering for this year’s Honolulu Pride Parade, an event hosted by the Hawai‘i LGBT Legacy Foundation. At Central Union Church where “We Engage and Embrace ALL as we seek to Embody Christ,” we believe in a God of extravagant love and welcome that extends to our LGBTQ siblings. Join us to share this love and proclaim that each person, whatever their sexual orientation and gender identity, is beloved by God!
