PLEASE HELP!

Hello folks, I am looking for a gay friendly church with contemporary music / upbeat (no traditional hymm or choir) music service ministry near Plano. It doesn't have to be openly gay, just accepting.

Non-denominational and/or independent a big plus. Not too small either.

Thank you for your time. God bless.

I'm as gay as the love child of Richard Simmons and David Tutera! I'm interested in any answers to the question above as well.

You might try First United Methodist Church in Richardson near 75 & Arapaho. I'm not sure the gay-friendliness, but they have a 2nd service on Sunday that is Jesus-focused indie type rock music played live with a short service in the middle. I'd call them biker & tattoo friendly. Their earlier service is more traditional. Not sure if they have that service every weekend either.

They also have a consistent, inexpensive, and overall excellent mothers day out about once a month available to everyone.

Try Community Unitarian in Plano (Community Unitarian Universalist Church - Plano, Texas) or Community Unitarian in Carrollton (Welcome to Horizon Unitarian Universalist Church).

Both have established themselves as "welcoming" congregations for LGBT folks. The denomination itself has been welcoming of LGBT clergy and congregants since the 1970s.

Suggest you attend both to see if your other requirements are met.

I thought about recommending them too. They are definitely gay friendly, and I think they hold the title of "the world's largest Gay Church" but they aren't non denominational, and their Sunday service is pretty traditional. I think their Wednesday night is a little more contemporary. The Methodist Church on Oak Lawn has a fairly open minded congregation from what I've heard, but I've never been, and it's been years since I've attended CoH.

I attend Royal Lane Baptist church. It's extremely LGBT welcoming.

Yes, non-denominational is where I'm getting stuck. I have friends who love Cathedral of Hope. Someone else mentioned Royal Lane Baptist (yes, Baptist!). There is also Northaven Methodist.

Unity Church on Lower Greenville might meet your criteria too (except for the being near Plano part):

Renaissance Church is a gay-friendly, contemporary/modern, progressive, spiritual, non-denominational church that meets in downtown Plano at the Courtyard Theater. We are just a bunch of people who love life, love music and wear jeans to church! 10am Sundays www.rclive.org
