The Faith in Context Sunday School Class at Countryside United Methodist Church, Topeka, Kansas proclaims that people are created in the image of God and affirm that each person, regardless of age, economic status, faith history, ethnicity, gender, mental or physical ability, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender identification is a beloved child of God and worthy of God’s love and grace. We support the full participation of all persons in every phase of church life. Through education and informal discussion, we will strive to better understand those who are different from ourselves to bring about a more accepting society. We recognize ourselves to be a Reconciling Community within the Great Plains Conference and choose to officially associate ourselves with the Reconciling Ministries Network within The United Methodist Church. We see this network as a sign of hope and through the association offer our witness to other communities and congregations within our denomination to foster the spirit of reconciliation and movement toward inclusiveness.
