Our missional priorities:
1. We do justice for LGBTQ+ humans.
2. We do kindness for people with mental illness and in emotional distress, and celebrate neurodiversity.
3. We do beauty for our God-Who-Is-Beautiful.
4. We do real relationship, no bullshit, ever.

and... action! Galileo makes movies!

Jesus spent his life looking for people who were hungry, and he fed them. Sometimes it was the yummy kind of food, sometimes it was food for the spirit, and sometimes it was both. Shouldn't we do the same?


At a marriage equality rally in Dallas on the eve of the Supreme Court hearings (15.04.27), Rev. Dr. Katie Hays was granted 90 seconds to explain our church's support of justice for LGBTQ people.


In Fall 2014, on the eve of the Fifth Circuit Court hearings on marriage equality, we went to Dallas for our first marriage equality rally - ever! The organizers of the rally wanted to hear a voice from the suburbs, but these voices were in short supply that night.

Here's an introduction to Galileo Church when it was only a gleam in the pastor's eye. 


Joel Brown - one of the original co-conspirators of Galileo Church - tells our story at the 2014 Stone-Campbell Dialogue at Abilene Christian University.


The first time Katie spoke really publicly about LGBT inclusion was this sermon - preached to a few hundred ministers at our denominational event early on a Monday morning. On Tuesday, we would face a vote concerning the inclusion of LGBTQ people in our church's worship, work, and leadership. You'll be able to guess how Katie voted.


We like to party (a lot). We also like to roller skate. Sometimes, we like to combine the two. Movie by Marissa Colley.
