On Thursdays, LGBTQ+ Folks and Allies are invited to a unique and Spirit-filled community gathering. Doors open for socializing at the Queer Cafe 5:30 p.m. and the Experience starts at 6:00 p.m.

We are the Kaleidoscope. Inspired by the vast wealth of human diversity, we seek to reclaim our faith in Love by gathering in intersectional community to explore the sacredness of the lives, voices, and stories of all.

Welcome to Kaleidoscope!

What We Do

Kaleidoscope meets each Thursday starting at 5:30 p.m. We offer a place for LGBTQ+ folks and allies to explore and experience their spirits, to connect with one another, and to be loved.

Queer Cafe
From 5:30-6:00 p.m. all are invited to the Queer Cafe where they're encouraged to "spill the tea." This is a time of friendship with warm drinks and treats. Come to chat, get to know people, and be known!

Stay at 6:00 p.m. to Experience the Kaleidoscope. This is a time to engage with the Spirit that created and sustains us through, to, and with each other. It features storytelling and community offerings in song, dance, poetry, art, spoken word or music.  Pastrix Carmen will offer a short sacred reading, reflection, and prayer.

Once a month, we will gather for a community meal. Our first meal was around Thanksgiving time when we gathered for a Friendsgiving Taco Bar. Our next meal will celebrate the new year. You're invited to come and decompress, laugh, and eat! Reach out for more information.
