BARTON STONE-MOUNT HOPE UNITED IS AFFIRMING

On June 21, 2015 the congregation of Barton Stone United passed the following motion.

Following the path of our church ancestors who expressed their faith in God by seeking justice through continually exploring ways to make Barton Stone-Mount Hope United Church a safe space for everyone, we wish to state publicly that we will provide a safe, nurturing environment for one and for all regardless of: gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, race, nationality, culture, socio-economic status, mental ability and physical ability. 
With the help of the Holy Spirit we will live out this ministry by
  1. continuing to discover what it means to be an inclusive community
  2. reaching out to others to communicate that we are a safe place
  3. offering symbols of welcome in prominent locations
  4. treating all with respect
  5. engaging in conversation with other churches that are discussing issues of inclusion.
We will do this so “That All May Be One.”
