A LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY FROM OUR PASTOR

Resolved to continue in ministries of full inclusivity and welcome

The recent actions of the General Conference to increase restrictions on ministries of LGBTQ inclusion within congregations such as ours are incredibly painful to bear. By its exclusionary actions, the General Conference did incredible harm to the body of Christ and specifically to LGBTQ persons, families and allies, and congregations. Millions will grieve this action including several members of First UMC.

And yet, despite such oppressive, denominational action, the faithfulness of First UMC will remain strong for we will remain in love and solidarity with the LGBTQ persons who are members of our families and members of our church and community at large. I and the congregation celebrate the sacred worth of all children of God. We remain resolved to continue in ministries of full inclusivity and welcome.

Reverend David P. Aslesen
