Port Edwards UMC strives to be a fully inclusive (pro-LGBTQIA+) community of faith.
We strive not only to include, but to affirm God’s diversity
of gender identity and sexual orientation.
[the following statement was adopted by unanimous vote
of both PEUMC’s Vision Team (1/17/22) and Church Council (1/23/22)]
We, the People of Port Edwards United Methodist Church, believe . . .
We recognize that we can only ever be reconciling, not reconciled,
and with great humility, deny any notion that we have achieved
the status of full-inclusivity. It is forever a state of becoming.
While we celebrate the God-given diversity of humanity,
and value people along the spiritual, political, and social spectrums,
in order to provide a safe and brave space,
particularly for those who have historically been voiceless and invisible, we do ask for unity of our members and guests in this endeavor.
This is the first and most foundational step of being fully-inclusive.
