Open & Affirming

ECC welcomes ALL people. In an effort to be intentional and clear about what that means, we offer the following Statement of Inclusion:

All Means All

Eastwood Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) seeks to be a people of grace and welcome to all God’s children. We affirm the faith, baptism and spiritual gifts of all Christians, and we are glad to welcome into fellowship and service all people — no matter what race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, ethnicity, marital status, physical or mental ability, economic status, political stance, theological perspective, etc. We celebrate that ALL are part of God’s good creation.

Please note: this also means we are happy to host and perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex as well as heterosexual couples.
