LGBTQIA Resource Page 

In November 2022 after two + years of discernment, learnings and conversations, Seventh Street Christian Church voted unanimously to become Open & Affirming. That means, we affirm and value all peoples of any sexual orientation or gender expressions at SSCC. 

This work does not end with a "vote," but is a catalyst for continued education and support, both internally as Christians and in our community. At SSCC you will see people of all sexual orientations in leadership and we speak to it in our preaching. We also dedicate ourselves to create thoughtful educational opportunities, supporting local LGBTQIA initiatives, and standing alongside LGBTQIA siblings in the face of injustice. 

The following page is dedicated to LGBTQIA resources that may be helpful to you or your family. If you know of additional resources or would like to partner with us, please email us using the button below. 


Local Resources

Diversity Richmond: is a catalyst, voice, a place and a resource that enriches and champions our diverse community, because we aspire for a vibrant, inclusive Richmond where inequality does not exist. 

Youth Resources

Side By Side:is an organization that works to ensure VA's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth have an equal opportunity for success through programming, support meetings, education, and advocacy for youth and young adults ages 11-20 years.

Our Church community at the AllianceQ Banquet at the August 2023 General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).


SSCC is a proud member of the AllianceQ ministry which is called to join in God’s work to transform Disciple congregations into a just and inclusive church that welcomes persons of all gender expressions and sexual identities into the full life and leadership of the church.

Church Library 

Yea, we know. Church library and LGBTQIA resources is an oxymoron - but not this library! We recently added a robust selection of modern books to help educate people of all ages. 

We also have resources of local support groups and inclusive youth programs. We invite you to check it out when you visit SSCC!
