Monday, October 19 7 PM
Workshop and Fundraiser
Since First Church became a reconciling congregation, the experience and understanding of sexual orientation and gender identities have grown. Join us for this workshop as we learn and explore.
Participants will be invited to make a donation to the Reconciling Ministries Network which supports individuals and faith communities as they come to a fuller understanding of human sexuality and gender identity in conversation with Christianity.
We will meet via Zoom. Click here to register.
Our Presenter Rev. Anna Voinovich
Anna Voinovich is a (soon-to-be ordained) Elder in the Northern Illinois Conference of the United Methodist Church. They are currently serving at Downers Grove First United Methodist Church as the associate pastor. One of Anna’s passions is journeying with and supporting faith communities as they seek justice and inclusion for LGTBQIA people in the church and beyond. They have enjoyed leading workshops and conversations at churches and conferences around sexual orientation and gender identity. As an undergrad student at Bowling Green State University, Anna received a minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies. More recently, they participated in volunteer training through Youth Outlook, an awesome organization supporting LGBTQIA youth in Northern Illinois. Anna is grateful for the opportunity to teach and learn alongside First Church Elmhurst in this Zoom workshop!
