What does it mean to be Reconciling?
Travis Park Church is a Reconciling United Methodist Congregation.
Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN) is committed to intersectional justice across and beyond the United Methodist connection, working for the full participation of all LGBTQ+ people throughout the life and leadership of the Church.
Becoming a Reconciling Ministry or Reconciling Individual means that you’re committed to achieving LGBTQ+ justice and inclusion in the life and ministry of The United Methodist Church, both in policy and in practice.
A Reconciling Congregation proclaims a statement of welcome to all who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in church and society, and invites all people to join in a faith journey toward greater love, understanding, and mutual respect.
Travis Park Church is a Reconciling United Methodist Congregation
In 2008, a church conference was called for the purpose of adopting a resolution to become an official Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN) congregation. The vote overwhelmingly was in favor of the resolution and Travis Park United Methodist Church became the second official Reconciling Ministries Network congregation within the Southwest Texas Annual Conference.
Today, we are the only Reconciling United Methodist Congregation in San Antonio.

Parents Reconciling Network Stole Project
Parents Reconciling Network (PRN) is best known for the creation and distribution of rainbow stoles that have been worn by Reconciling United Methodists at general conferences, at annual conferences, and in local congregations as a sign of support for the full inclusion of all in the United Methodist Church (UMC).
We invite you to consider your role in this continued advocacy and support for parents and their LGBTQ+ children that all may know they are loved and beloved children of God.
Travis Park Church members and the Reconciling Ministries Network ministry wear rainbow stoles as a sign of our support of full inclusion of all.
You can find a copy of the stole pattern at The Welcome Desk on Sundays. You can also download them below.
