The Congregational United Church of Christ, 209 W. Broadway in Decorah, will host a service of song, prayer and blessing for the GLBTQIA community Monday, March 25, at 5:30 p.m.

"In the days that follow, on March 26 and 27, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in two cases regarding marriage equality that will impact queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexed Americans. Though these are busy days for many people--as some begin Passover and some are on the journey between Palm Sunday and Easter-we are setting this time apart intentionally to honor the realities faced by the GLBTQIA community and to share our voices collectively in prayer and in song in hope for a different future. We hope that you and your faith community will join us," said Pastor Laura Arnold of CUCC.
