We, the members of the First Congregational United Church of Christ, Zumbrota, Minnesota, an Open and Affirming congregation, celebrate each person as a child of God with special gifts and graces. We believe that when any person's opportunity for spiritual growth and worship is limited by injustice, our own growth is restricted and our worship diminished. We proclaim our commitment to the ministry of Jesus Christ for and with all persons without regard to race, gender, gender identity and/or expression, age, ability, economic status, sexual orientation, or place on life's journey, welcoming all into the full life and ministry of the church.
