Affirming Vision Statement

We, the congregation of First United Church, declare publicly our commitment to creating a community that welcomes and values all people –
people of all ages, abilities, genders, racial identities, sexual orientations, gender identities, family configurations, cultural backgrounds, and economic circumstances, and

people who have had any other experiences that have led to exclusion, marginalization, or oppression within church or society.

We invite and honour the participation of all in every aspect of church life.

We acknowledge the challenges diversity brings and embrace them fully because we also celebrate the richness of its gifts. We pray for God’s grace to guide us as we work for equity and justice for all persons in both church and society.
