OPEN & AFFIRMING COVENANT
As a community of believers, we, the members and friends of First Congregational United Church Of Christ Elyria,

We welcome into our community persons of every gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, every mental and physical ability, age, race, nationality, economic and social status, faith background, marital standing and family structure.
We invite everyone to share in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities, blessings and joys of our congregation as we seek to grow together in faith and love.
We commit ourselves to offering openness, understanding, justice and healing to each and every person.
We celebrate the diversity of God’s creation.
