Open & Affirming
FCCE has a long history of being a welcoming community for all people. We are officially an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ and listed on their web sites. We welcome all people into the full life and ministry of this church, celebrating our human family's diversity of age, ethnicity, education, economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, faith history, marital status, and physical and mental health.
July is Pride Month
During the month of July, FCCE celebrated Pride Month and reflected on the diversity within our church and in the community at large. As an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, we are committed to fostering an inclusive environment where everyone seeking spiritual enrichment feels welcome and safe, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Additionally, to educate and further foster understanding around LGBTQ issues, we offered a book study and brief discussion using the book, The Bible and the Transgender Experience: How Scripture Supports Gender Variance by Linda T. Herzer. We invited participants to explore and enhance our understanding of this important topic and the challenges and experiences faced by the LGBTQI community.
We invite you to call our church office at 760-745-3320 if you would like more information on this topic. Our Open & Affirming Team is available to provide resource materials from the book study.
