More Light/Open and Affirming Statement
We the people of New Covenant Community, warmly welcome all who wish to share our spiritual journey as followers of Christ. In light of current controversies within the churches, we intend by this Resolution to make explicit our welcome to all persons without regard to sexual orientation. This welcome includes our readiness to elect persons to all leadership offices within the congregation without regard to sexual orientation. We therefore publicly identify ourselves with others making similar declarations in the denominations of which we are a part, namely, “More Light” congregations of the Presbyterian Church (USA), and “Open and Affirming” congregations of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ.
