Letters: Park City Community Church preaches acceptance, inclusion and love
Acceptance, inclusion and love
In recent weeks, the Methodist Council voted to limit the extent of participation of the LGBTQ+ community in church activities. We three members of the Park City Community Church, a Methodist church, find this unacceptable because it is not inclusive nor compassionate. The Park City Community Church has been a part of the community for more than 100 years. During this time, the church was proud of following the Methodist motto of “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.” Following Jesus’ teachings, all people are welcome to be a part of our church. Welcome to all means welcome to LGBTQ+, blacks, Hispanics, skiers, snowboarders, full-time residents, part-time residents, believers, non-believers, doubters, etc. — all people!
The Park City Community Church is committed to the rights of and dignity for all. We aspire to be a church of acceptance, inclusion and love.

Every donation matters
Would you be willing to pay $800,000 for almost $9 million and 158 acres of farmland? I hope so. That’s a deal of a lifetime.
Summit Land Conservancy has worked tirelessly for the last two years raising money and securing grants in order to save the 158-acre Osguthorpe Farm along Old Ranch Road from development. They are now down to the last $800,000, which must be raised by end of March or they will lose an $8.8M federal grant that can only be used for this parcel of land.
Park City and Summit County residents — this is our only chance to save this farm and open space from development. But we need to act fast. Hundreds of locals and people from all over the world have opened their wallets (thank you!) bringing this project to only 4 percent from the finish line.
We’re so close! Let’s not lose the farm to development over $800,000. Please go to wesaveland.org/osguthorpe. Every single donation matters! Just ask 8-year-old Tenneson Klein who not only donated his piggy bank but is out raising money in order to save the farm.
