We declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming congregation and as such we believe that Christ came into the world to be God's example of unconditional love for all people. Following this example we acknowledge and celebrate the diversity of the human race. Persons of all races, religious backgrounds, sexual orientations, mental and physical disabilities, economic or marital status are welcome into full membership. All who seek a faith community are invited to join us on this journey of life, faith, and fellowship.
OPEN TABLE, TOO
Open Table, Too is a community for all GLBT persons and friends. The group is a safe place and hopefully a fun place for all GLBT that attend. This group is a ministry of the First Congregational United Church of Christ, Ottawa. Discussions are open, and subjects range from personal to social issues, religious to political.
If you know anyone (GLBT) looking for a community please pass this information on to them. We know that many GLBT people long for a safe place to find community that is not judgmental, but fully supportive.
