First United’s Affirming Ministry vote was held on Sunday, November 28th over Zoom
Motion “That First United Church become an Affirming Ministry based on the Affirming Vision Statement and Affirming Action Plan that have been presented.” Janet Keene/Sharon Veer. Carried (98%)
On Sunday, February 6th at 10:30 a.m. we celebrated this amazing step forward in our journey to become a community where all people are welcomed and valued in a very special worship service. We are very excited to move forward with living into the Affirming Vision Statement and Action Plan.
(NOTE: The Affirming Ministry Committee developed the Affirming Vision Statement and Affirming Action Plan in consultation with Council and the congregation over the course of the fall and early winter of 2019. In early 2020, they were both officially approved by Council and by Affirm United.)
