Reconciling Team of First UMC
“FUMC of Moorestown seeks to live the motto of The United Methodist Church: “Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors.” Following the example of Jesus, the Reconciling Team of FUMC believes that living this motto means dedicating ourselves to social justice and service. We affirm the scriptural message that all people are created in the image of God, and as beloved children of God, all are worthy of God’s love and grace. We celebrate our human family’s differences, including diversity of race, ethnicity, age, religious background, life experience, economic status, marital status, family configuration, physical and developmental ability, education, sexual orientation, and gender identity. As Jesus welcomes each of us, we welcome the full inclusion of all people in the life and ministries of FUMC to worship, love, serve, and grow.
We proclaim this statement of welcome to all who have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination in the church or in society and know that everyone’s participation in our ministry enriches us. We are committed to a ministry sharing the love of God through reconciliation, friendship, compassion, and service to others, and we invite all people to join us in our faith journey towards greater love, understanding, and mutual respect.”
