City Square Church at the Phoenix Pride Parade

Join us in the 2019 Phoenix Pride Parade!

City Square Church proudly participates in the Phoenix Pride Parade every year.

Instead of our regular Sunday Service at Primera Iglesia on Sunday, April 7th, we will meet at 9:30 AM at 3rd Street and Windsor Ave (south of Thomas) and be in the Phoenix Pride Parade.

The parade starts at 10AM with check-in from 8-9:30AM.

The parade route ends at Steele Indian School Park. If you drive, you may want to start the day at the Camelback Park and Ride and take the light rail to Thomas. Then when the parade concludes, you can take the light rail back to your vehicle. If you live along the light rail route, the light rail is convenient for that day.

CSQ’s National Coming Out Day: #ChurchOut Sunday

In honor of the 30th anniversary of National Coming Out Day, City Square Church is excited to host a #ChurchOut celebration Sunday, October 7, at 10am. #ChurchOut is an opportunity to foster compassion and understanding of the journey of our LGBTQ sisters and brothers living openly in a religious community.

#ChurchOut Sunday will feature four tellers who’ll share stories about coming out as a teenager, a minister, a couple and the yet-unfolding journey of learning to trust people of faith.

Our primary goal for this event is to facilitate reconciliation between the LGBTQ community and the church by:
1. Listening to stories by our LGBTQ friends
2. Repenting as a church for our callous response to the LGBTQ community
3. Committing to support other faith communities that provide safe and affirming space for LGBTQ individuals

(NOTE: This is the first of a two-part celebration. The citywide #ChurchOut event is scheduled for 6pm, Thursday, Oct. 11, at Boycott Bar – https://www.facebook.com/events/242134943174508/.)
