Sunday at lunch Rev. Ladale Benson asked me if there is another church in Concord that is open and affirming (of LGBT people). I said a few are. But I don’t know of any others with a Rainbow and Transgender flag flying outside their building. A first time worshiper that day told us they came because they saw a photo on our website of the flags hanging on the church building and said, “I gotta check out this church!”

Then I asked Ladale if he knew of another church anywhere that a black man and a white man share the pulpit at the same time. He didn’t. Neither do I.
We agreed: Trinity UCC is a pretty special church in Concord NC. And it will be even more special on Easter Sunday with you there, and a full breakfast buffet that can’t be topped anywhere!

So come check it out this Sunday. Breakfast is from 8:30am-10am (donations kindly accepted). There’s an Egg Hunt at 9:30am and worship at 11am with both Ladale and me in the pulpit. We’ll save a place for you.

Rev. Nathan King
