Welcome Statement: We, the Cabarrus Reconciling Community, believe that all persons are created in God’s image and are of sacred worth. We embrace our human family’s diversity. We welcome and affirm persons of all of ages, races, cultures, sexual orientations, gender identities, family configurations, religious backgrounds, socio-economic status, immigration status, and intellectual, emotional or physical abilities.
Acknowledgement of Harm: To all who have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination in houses of worship and society: We proclaim welcome and encourage participation of all persons. May the spirit of inclusion and affirmation enrich us all in our journey toward greater understanding, mutual respect, and love.
Our Mission: As a community, we strive to encourage and empower laypersons to be beacons of welcome to LGBTQ persons in their local congregations and work for full inclusion in The United Methodist Church.
