Are you looking for a place to worship?
The Episcopal churches
listed are "welcoming and
affirming" of transgender, bisexual, lesbian and gay people and their families,
inviting them to share in the life of the church. They encourage TBLG persons to
participate in all aspects of the ministry of the church: by bearing witness to
Christ, according to the gifts given them; carrying out Christ's work of reconciliation
to the world; and taking their place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church.
The Episcopal Church is part of the world-wide Anglican (i.e., Church of England)
Communion of churches. We are Eucharistic-centered and regard Scripture, tradition, and
reason as authoritative in our moral decision-making.
The above churches, listed on three pages, are all located in the Diocese of Michigan,
which includes the communities of southeast Michigan. Each of the three tables are
arranged alphabetically by city.

Episcopal Bishop's quote
"For me, homosexuality is not primarily a cause or an issue: it is a matter of men and
women I know, respect and love, and whose lives bear ample witness to the fruits of the
Spirit; ... people with whom I have shared ministry and friendship, whose many gifts
have enriched my life and continue to bless and build up the Church."
-The Rt. Rev. Frank T. Griswold
XV Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church
