Statement of Inclusion

Sanctuary is an open and affirming community. We offer a wide welcome to all people who strive to love without regard to ability, age, color, economic circumstance, religious background, ethnic background, nationality, family configuration, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation.

We seek to follow the way of Jesus and affirm the diversity of people’s stories and beliefs. We refuse to limit who God loves and welcomes into community. We celebrate the gifts of all who come seeking God, community, and justice in our world, and encourage full participation in the life and leadership of our community. We promise to strive for justice and peace among all people and affirm the dignity of every human being.
