Our Covenant of Welcome:
"For everyone born, a place at our table.
Striving to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, we promote communities of joy, hope, love and peace. We welcome you no matter your age, race, gender identity, gender expression, education, marital status, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, political viewpoint, immigration status, physical or mental ability, national origin or religious belief. You are welcome with open arms, minds, hearts and souls. We are all children of God and we celebrate the diversity of human life. We strive for full-inclusion of all people to live without fear and simply be.
This Covenant of Welcome was approved by the Washington, DC Congregation Sunday, December 11, 2016.
