Thank you. Genuinely.:) I appreciate the people who have been helpful or, at the very least, respectful when replying. I understand that not everyone shares my accepting, open-minded point of view. The Lord knows I know there's a great deal of ignorant hatemongers and I did expect to come across a few of them by posting this but I didn't come here to debate it and I didn't intend to even attempt to change anybodies mind. I made my reason for posting and my intentions very clear and I will not stray from that because I'm SO open-minded that I don't care what anyone else believes. Live and let live. I cannot be baited into a debate. All one has to do is look at the heaps of dead horses on these boards that have been beaten into dust to know that...well there's no point. Yeah...guess I'm no fun at all, lol. Again, thanks for your input.:)

The beauty of this country is, I dont have to accept you for your horrid ways. You are sick, and only God can fix you. I hope you find a church that teaches you all of the bible and all about God so you can live a good life. I dont hate you or your lifestyle, I am just sick of your kind pushing it down those of us who sternly disagree with it. We have the same right to disagree as you do. YOU need to remember that. And if you thought you wouldnt get a response like this from many around here, youre a moron.

Blah blah blah. :) You sure do like to waste your time. I'm sure that response is full of sharp wit and brilliant intellect but I guess I'll never know since I'm just not interested in what you have to say.

While I think I understand where you are coming from, Miguel, I simply disagree with your point of view. I think that it's pretty hypocritical for people to pick and choose which parts of the Old Testament they will follow and which parts they will disregard. I possess a more progressive set of religious morals and, while I do believe the first half of the Bible is a good beginning, I much prefer the second half. With all that said, I'm not looking for a religious debate, nor do I care to change anyones mind about how they feel about homosexuality and the church.
For anyone else who may have been interested, I did find a church in Yulee that seems promising. http://www.newvisioncongregationalchurch.org/
I'm still going to look into SECC first though. Thanks!
Christians are in the New Testament. Jews are in the old. Now that you have found your church then I can assume you not longer need assistence.

oh my gay God, the question was, does anyone know of an accepting and welcoming church in the camden area. No one asked what do you think about gays! Christ dined with the sinner, the adulter, the thief, his mission was to bring faith closer to those who are the farthest from it. My God is a loving and accepting one. Only he can judge me, and Love me, he will deal with me and I know he will accept me for who I am and forgive my indescretions and welcome me into the kingdom! I am a vital part of his creation as we all are. We are all connected to him and he leaves no one out! I understand ignorance, and mis information. Just worry about your level of sin and let us worry about ours! Now, The question was, are there any local faith houses which are open to gay folk, I'm one, my partner is two, and we are looking for a local place to share Gods word, now is there any information on this, Thanks, Kevin in St Marys

LOL! Ty Kevin!!! "Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve!" How original! Since I first posted this, I have tried an Episcopal church. I am not Episcopalian. I will try SECC next Sunday. The one in Yulee that I posted about seems like it would be the most promising but it DOES seem like it's a newer, smaller church and I would prefer a lot of youth activity in a church for my kids. If you find anything, please let me know!

"Let he who is without sin..." "Do unto others..."

Really? Sometimes it hurts me to call myself a christian because sometimes it only feels like the church is nothing but a cult. The way some of you so called believers believe just kills me. YesIAm, if you go to the wrong church around here they may make your family eat the heads off of chickens.

I don't believe being gay is right. But I have done a lot of wrong in my life also and God has forgiven me. I do believe that God spoke against it in the new and old testiment. I also believe that God loves us all, gay straight drunk and hopeless. When we submit to Him, He shows us the path to His will, whatever that may be. May God bless you on your quest to know and understand him. SECC is a wonderful church, non traditional and open minded, that wants to show everyone Gods grace and love. Give it a try. I did and I have found true peace in God through Jesus. You will be accepted for who you are with open arms.

Man, you do realize that you're in the "Bible Belt" don't you? What are you thinking opening that door? However, SECC is a great church; you and your family will love it there. Leave the gay-friendly commentary alone. It's your business. As far as gays in church goes, that's between them and God. Good luck to you and God bless...

yesiamjustme,

I commented earlier on your post. I know what it is like to look for a church that you can connect with, be yourself at, and feel a presence of something more than yourself. I searched and searched in vein. I continued my unfulfilled life, with a void in my heart, and began to doubt a God that loved me really existed. I struggled with my sexuality and my drug habits during this search. I found SECC and the first thing I noticed was a sign on the door that said "Shoes and Shirt Required". I walked in and people are wearing shorts and flip flops, not trying to look their Sunday best. People dont hide their tattoos or long hair. Everyone is accepted for who they are and NOT JUDGED BY WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE OR CHOOSE TO WEAR. Traditional church things like alter calls and sunday school are not done. The pastor has a very effective way of bringing the Word in an outside the box approach. I found God there in a small group that I was invited to after talking to a few of the many friendly and unpushy people. I guarantee you will be accepted. I hope you come and give it a try. It is the best thing I have ever done in my life, and gets better everyday. I am still far from a perfect person, but I now realize I will never be and God knows that and loves me anyway. Please join us. It cant hurt, can it?

You're right. Unless there's chicken involved. LOL :) I actually sat in on a few of the youth groups at the old SECC bldg a couple of years ago when a teenage relative was staying with us for a while and never saw any of the aforementioned chicken heads so we'll be there on Sunday.

Regardless of what some think, I didn't come here to debate. I'm subscribed to it and got an email notification that someone replied yesterday so that's why I came back. True, as I look back over the course of the conversation, I am guilty of a little bit of good natured (on my part) ribbing. I don't agree with all the views that have been posted here but I know you all are just as entitled to yours as I am to mine. I do realize that I am in the minority here but I was born and raised in a smaller town than this in a southern Baptist/Holiness household so I'm rather use to it. It's okay to be different. Really, it is.:)
