Is there a place of worship where gay people, and straight people that believe gay people should be treated like human beings can congregate?

So will the Conesiour's Mkt in the summer end at Menlo Park Pres or will it now end at the Menlo Park Convenant Order of Evangelicals?

Thanks for clarifying...

ECO is a Presbyterian Church as well, so there is no plan to change the name. It will stay the same, just as it has stayed the same though several denominational changes over the 140+ years since the church was founded.
