ACC OPEN AND AFFIRMING COVENANT STATEMENT

We at Acton Congregational church accept, affirm, and invite all families and individuals, as we all are created in God’s image.

Following the loving example of Jesus, we welcome into our community persons of every gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and marital status; of every mental and physical ability; of every economic and social status and political affiliation; of every faith background and at any step on the journey of faith.

We welcome all of God’s people to share in the life, mission, leadership, ministry, worship, sacraments, service, education, and fellowship of our congregation.  As we grow together in Christian faith and love, we celebrate the diversity God has created, and we are committed to working together, with God’s help and the Spirit’s guidance, to make this statement a reality in our church.
