The Congregational United Church of Christ, Arlington Heights, IL, in accordance with our shared value of inclusiveness, declares itself Open and Affirming. We welcome and accept into the full life and ministry of our church people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We maintain that every person has sacred worth as a unique creation made in the image of God. We believe that sexuality is a gift from God.
We reach out to those who are disenfranchised from the religious community, and we seek growth and understanding as we continue toward inclusiveness.
