Open & Affirming

onaWe, the congregation of the First Congregational Church of Wilton, Maine, United Church of Christ, seek to be known, and listed in a national directory, as an Open and Affirming Church.

This necessitates that we state in writing that we will never deny membership, positions of leadership, or employment to anyone based on his or her sexual orientation.

We hereby commit to this policy. We also wish to share our belief that we are all created in the image of God and come equally to the Lord’s Table.

We therefore proclaim ourselves to be an Open and Affirming Church to every person who professes a faith in Jesus Christ as his or her Lord and Savior and we invite all to join us in celebrating the Glory of God.
