Monona United Methodist Church accepts, affirms, and celebrates the message of Jesus that God loves and accepts every person. We, as members of MUMC, are called to live and practice this message within our church congregation and our communities. We choose the concepts of acceptance over exclusion, compassion over prejudgment, and grace over bias. For these reasons we as a congregation invite all persons regardless of age, gender identity, racial or ethnic background, sexual orientation, marital status, socioeconomic status, nationality, or physical or mental ability to join us as brothers and sisters and to participate fully in the life of this congregation. We recognize that we are all children of God, as as a result, we declare MUMC to be an Open, Affirming, Empowering, and Reconciling congregation.
