Dear Members and Friends,
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. After the vote Ann-Marie Illsley completed the on-line registry form which was received by the United Church of Christ’s Open and Affirming Coalition. The Coalition notified North Community Church that it had received our welcoming statement and assigned us the member number 1504. This means that we are the 1,504th congregation to become Open and Affirming. We shall receive a formal certificate in the near future. As a congregation let’s be thinking how we can fully live out the welcoming statement in the days ahead. Our future looks bright. The news is on the North Community Church Facebook page. Congratulations all!
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.
