Dear Friends…

We are looking forward to seeing all of you, as we “lay down” That All May Freely Serve, celebrating you and TAMFS’ nearly three decades of amazing ministry in and out of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A.

We will begin on Zoom at 4:00 PM Eastern and plan to close our formal part of the meeting at about 5:00 PM. We will leave the room open afterwards for any who would like to hang out and visit. It will be so good to be with you!

We hope to hear everyone’s voice during our visit, and it would be very helpful if you would let Ray know if you would like to say a few words. This will assist us in organizing our time by beginning with those who are ready to share. and we know you have some stories! So, bring them with you and let Ray know at raybagnuolo@nullgmail.com or send him a text on his cell at 631-827-8611.

  1. We will also be recording our time on Sunday, so if you wish not be recorded when you speak, just let Ray know before you begin and we will pause the recording. Same if you would rather not have your picture displayed, just let us know.

  2. In the months ahead, we will be creating a documentary about That All May Freely Serve and welcome any videos, pictures or other archive materials – in digital format only. Information on submission of matials will be posted on tamfs.org after Sunday. If you have some things that don’t fit into this format, please email Ray and we will see if we can work something out.

  3. We are so grateful for your support and generosity and we are not asking for any additional donations. However, we also ask that, if you wish, you make any final donations to That All May Freely Serve by December 31, 2020. Whatever funds we receive will be used in the winding down of the organization and in support of Janie’s work with TransHeartLine in the Bay Area. If you are looking for a place to redirect your past support for TAMFS, please consider TransHeartLine at transheartline.org.  We all agree – that would be wonderful!

So, come one, come all…and we will see you on Sunday!

With love,

Janie, Lisa and Ray

Dear Friends!

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. If you have any questions or would like to be in touch, please contact me at raybagnuolo@nullgmail.com or call/text me at 631-827-8611.

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

Ray
