Open and Affirming Statement
Affirming that God is still speaking and that there is yet more light and truth to break forth from God’s Holy Word, we, the members of First Congregational United Church of Christ of Platteville, Wisconsin, believe that it is our task to prayerfully discern how God speaks to and through us today.
United in our desire to know God and extend Christ’s realm of justice, peace and love; we declare ourselves to be an open and affirming congregation.
Relying on God’s grace, we seek to be a congregation that includes all persons, embracing differences of age, gender, marital status, mental and physical ability and sexual orientation as well as ethnic, faith, racial and social-economic background.
We welcome all to share in the life and leadership, ministry and fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities and blessings of participation in our congregation.
