Marriage Policy

On Sunday January 24, 2016, Triumphant held a Congregational Meeting to vote on the issue regarding same-sex weddings and marriages.

We as a church need to have a stated policy on this topic now that the Supreme Court has ruled that same-sex marriages are legal. And as the Call Committee works diligently toward finding our next Senior Pastor, a policy needs to be in place.

At the May 2016 Council Meeing, the Church Council discussed and approved TLC's Marriage Policy based on the results of the vote: 112 against same-sex marriage, 52 for same-sex marriage.
