You can help someone come home to love and acceptance today.
AWAB churches have offered a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, and arms to embrace for fifty years. Over 160 churches are a part of our family, and we’d love to see this family grow.
Join the Rainbow Circle of monthly donors as an individual today in order to help sustain compassion rather than rejection from our faith communities. Your support of AWAB will help us to increase our mission of advancing the Radical Welcome and Love of God in Jesus Christ and will enable us to reach more churches and more individuals seeking the Love of God that has been denied by many for far too long.
For as little as $10 per month, you will receive:
Free and/or deeply discounted fees for all AWAB events
Receive personal communications from AWAB annually
Annual public recognition for your support
A super-cool Rainbow Circle lapel pin
I have seen people come into our church and weep throughout an entire service because they feel they have come home. The stories of heartache and rejection are common, and it is an honor to sit with someone as they tell their story.
Monthly Rainbow Circle Levels:
- Coming Out – $10.
“Coming out is the process of self-identifying and self-acceptance that entails the sharing of their identity with others…There are many different degrees of being out, and coming out is a lifelong process.” PFlag
- Turtle – $25.
Per the Voice of the Turtle, the 1979 newspaper for American Baptists Concerned, “Behold the turtle, it makes progress only when it sticks its neck out.” James B. Conant.
- Lavender – $50.
“The “lavender scare” was a moral panic about homosexual people in the United States government which led to their mass dismissal from government service during the mid-20th century.” WMHT
- Glitter – $75.
“Parity, a faith-based LGBTQ-focused organization based in NYC, says that glitter is a part of this tradition because, like love, it’s ‘irresistible and irrepressible’ and ‘never gives up.’” Parity
- Pride – $100.
“Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements.” Pride
