We are an
Open and Affirming Congregation!
Our Covenant of Welcome:
We the people of Second Christian Congregational
United Church of Christ, seek to live in daring openness to become the faith community God is calling us to be as an
Open and Affirming church.
We joyfully affirm and celebrate the sacred beauty and uniqueness of each expression of God’s diverse family as well as our oneness in Christ. So when we say it is our mission to “Welcome all people into our community of faith” we mean everyone: persons of every age, gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, mental and physical ability, national origin, faith or educational background, economic or social status, marital standing and family structure. We celebrate the sacredness of every person as a child of God.
We invite everyone to bless this church with their gifts in our worship and music, sacraments and rites, leadership and service, nurture and outreach, and ministries of compassion and advocacy for peace and justice. By sharing in all the joys of our family of faith, we will be enriched and learn together what it really means to love and follow Jesus,
