Open and Affirming Welcoming Statement
On Sunday, February 25, 2018, at the bi-annual meeting, the Open and Affirming Welcoming Statement was approved unanimously by the congregation. The Welcoming Statement does not replace our beloved purpose covenant written in the 1990’s and read monthly before communion; It stands unedited.
The welcoming statement is a public statement for those outside our congregation, leaving no doubt that we welcome people of any gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation.
North Community is an Open and Affirming church. With God's grace, we welcome people of any gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, race, ethnicity, faith background, physical and mental ability, marital, political, and socioeconomic status. We invite all to join us in worship, friendship, and leadership. Whoever you are and wherever you are on life's spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
