You are invited to That All May Freely Serve’s final gathering on Sunday, December 6th at 4 PM Eastern time. We know the work for justice and liberation is never done, and we know that our part in this ministry has been completed. Join us for a time in celebration and gratitude for having been part of such an amazing movement.
As you know, TAMFS’ ministry of love and justice began in 1993 at the Downtown United Presbyterian Church in Rochester, New York. Since then, TAMFS’ commitment to Queer people in the church and beyond has guided our path in “personning the issue” — as we used to say — often acting as a curriculum for others. It is because of you and the cloud of witnesses always nearby that resistance and obstacles toward our community have been uprooted; light has reached into the shadows; and the effectiveness of our continues growing ever stronger, relying on all that we have built together.
We hold enormous gratitude and appreciation for the privilege of participating in this liberating work. A privilege made even sweeter by having served with you and so many others, from the once “Three Sisters” of More Light Presbyterians, Shower of Stoles and That All May Freely Serve to so many individuals and organizations that came together in mission.
The formal work of That All May Freely Serve comes to a close at the end of 2020. As individuals, we will stand with one another always, supporting the ongoing work of eradicating heterosexism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, ageism, able-bodyism and all the oppressive systems that promote and institutionalize injustice – in the world and especially within the church.
So, plan on “Zooming-in” and joining us for a celebration of That All May Freely Serve on December 6th, at 4:00 PM Eastern Time on Zoom. All are invited and welcome! The Zoom link below and additional information will be posted at www.tamfs.org.

With gratitude and love on behalf of Janie, Lisa and me,
