|Woodland Park Presbyterian Church||Woodland Park Presbyterian Church is located on 70th and Greenwood on Phinney Ridge, we march in celebration that God loves ALL people. We believe that the radical inclusivity of God's love is not restricted or withheld from any person. God loves those who have faith, and those who doubt; those housed or not housed; those who have money, and those who do not; people documented and undocumented. God loves those who identify gay, straight, trans, nonconforming; God's love is queer and mysterious. You- yes YOU, are welcome here!|
