Open Hearts

A support group for friends, family, and allies of LGBTQ

After a year of offering love and support to the family and friends of the LGBTQ community for a year and a half, the leaders have decided to no longer continue meeting. As the UMC continues to live in tension with the topic of human sexuality and how to be in ministry to and with LGBTQ person, we hope that those who are personally affected will find someone with whom they can openly discuss their feelings.

God will always listen but it is nice to have a human who will give you a warm hug. Although Open Hearts will no longer be meeting, Kim, Director of Christian Education, and Loretta, who is the mother of a gay son, are still be available if you want to talk. Contact  or call 512-282-7274.

If you are looking for another meeting, PFLAG Austin may be a resource for families and friends of the LGBTQ community. They currently have a meeting on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm at Buda United Methodist Church.
