Jesus said: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

We love all our neighbors when we provide for them what we provide for ourselves. The world today is a difficult place to be LGBTQI. Therefore, this Christian community at Christ Church Warwick resolves to offer a safe, compassionate, inclusive place for LGBTQI Youth – through supportive people and programs – as we try to do for all communities within our town of Warwick.  In this, we continue to fulfill our 2018 Vision Statement: “We are a growing community of believers, committed to walking with Christ, welcoming all, and serving God by serving others.”
