We are an Open and Affirming congregation. This is our welcoming statement:
"Following the teachings of Jesus and the ongoing leading of the Holy Spirit, we, The First Congregational Church of Canton Center, affirm that all people are created in the image of God, uniquely gifted, and called into the life of community.
We are an open congregation that fully welcomes and affirms persons of all ages, races, nationalities, faith backgrounds, economic and social status, marital status, family configuration, physical and mental health or ability, gender, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation.
We welcome all into full participation in the membership, fellowship and ministries of this church, as we seek to practice a faith that gathers us inclusively and equips us joyfully for lives of love and service, in both the church and the world.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here. "
