We are a fully inclusive and RMN Youth Group! Here is our statement written and unanimously approved by our students:
The Youth Group of Webster Hills United Methodist Church supports and welcomes all people into every phase of our church life. We celebrate God’s gift of diversity and value the wholeness made possible in a community equally shared and shepherded by all. We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more. We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed. Through discussion and education, we strive to better understand those who are different from ourselves to bring about a more accepting society. We affirm that all people are created in the image of God. As beloved children of God, we are all worthy of God's love. We believe that no one is incompatible with the love and saving Grace of Jesus Christ.
