Dreams and Visions is a church in Baltimore that’s awake to the realities of our world and alive to the possibilities of God.

Together, we’re creating an imaginative space of restoration, where we find the courage to be our full selves. We are a community rooted in the faith and experiences of LGBTQ+ people.

At Dreams and Visions, we seek to pattern our lives after Jesus, that healer, agitator, and teacher who stands on the side of the oppressed.

There are three ways we gather…

Making name panels at worship

Our gatherings for worship are spirited, soulful, and filled with art and song. All ages and abilities have a place and a role. Worship is Queering and spirit-led, invites truth-telling and gratitude, and moves us toward God’s dream of justice.

Services are always held on a Sunday afternoon at 4pm. In 2019, we plan to launch regular monthly services. For now, attend the next gathering on November 11, 2018.

House Church Abbeys

An abbey is a place where a nun or monk lives. It’s a spiritual home where prayer meets daily life. Though we don’t live in an abbey, we seek to weave our faith through our homes, our work, and our daily lives.

Dreams and Visions plans to launch monthly house church gatherings in congregants’ homes. These house church gatherings will be an intimate time to study scripture, pray together, and share our stories.

Being Baltimore

Every month we build relationships in Baltimore. We find ways to connect with and learn from activists, teachers, and organizers, and to support the work that’s taking place in our city.

We do this work as a congregation because we believe God wants us to be in deeper relationship with our community, and learn the stories of our neighbors.

We seek to be a place where…

The divine in each of us is seen and remembered

False binaries are left behind

Queerness is holy

You can bring your full self

Our souls are restored

Justice is pursued

 
 
 

…Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
   your elders shall dream dreams,
   and your youth shall see visions.

A Project of the ELCA

Dreams and Visions is a project of the Lutheran Church (ELCA). But you don’t have to be a Lutheran to take part in this community. Everyone is welcome, from all traditions or no tradition.

Lutherans believe that no matter how far you wander or how far you fall, God can always find you, and is always searching for you. God’s grace is always close enough to reach.
