Inclusive Language: In our life as a congregation, we are committed to using language that is rich, varied, expansive, biblically inspired and inclusive. We understand inclusivity to guide our gender language for human beings and God as well as informing sensitivity to issues like class, hierarchy and militarism. This commitment is relected in our worship services, hymns, prayers, and Biblical readings.
More Light and Open and Affirming: Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people are actively welcome at Church of the Covenant and are fully included in all roles and functions within the congregation. We have a pioneering history of openness and support for the full inclusion of LGBT people in our congregation. We celebrate all marriages under the auspices of the UCC. We continue to work with both of our denominations and agitate for full equality and inclusion of LGBT people in both the UCC and the PC(USA).
