First Church Marches in Oakland Pride Parade

Sun, Sep 10, 2017


A bunch of First Church folk marched in the 2017 Oakland Pride Parade in downtown Oakland celebrating the full inclusion of LGBTQ folk in church and society.

They carried the First Church banner and a number of other signs through the streets of downtown Oakland. As they waited to begin they did a Facebook Live stream right into the 10 am worship service.

Several faith groups were organized including several other UCC churches.

After the parade they and several others from the church enjoyed the Festival that took place at the end of the parade.
