Open and Affirming Statement

 As a people of the covenant, we, the members of First Congregational Church/United Church of Christ in Las Vegas, Nevada, welcome all people into the full life and ministry of this church. We recognize, celebrate, and give thanks for the many diverse gifts of God among us.

In covenant, we declare ourselves to be open and affirming of all God’s children, and thus we celebrate God’s love for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, races, ethnicities, ages, and abilities. Our Mission Statement calls us to embrace an ever-expanding community and a lifestyle of generosity and service.

In covenant, we pledge to do our part in proclaiming that all may know that any unjust discrimination is incompatible with Christ’s Gospel of unconditional love.

Let Your light shine, O God, that all may see.
