Chelsea First United Methodist Church Remains Open and Welcoming to All
The recent decisions made by a special session of the United Methodist Church’s General Conference have caused shock and sadness to LGBTQ persons, their families, and their friends, including many of our own parishioners.  The Administrative Council of Chelsea First United Methodist Church laments the deep pain that these decisions have caused you. We apologize and continue to welcome you.
Chelsea First United Methodist Church affirms that all persons are individuals of sacred worth and that the ministry of the church is available to all (words from our denomination’s constitution). We boldly proclaim that each human being is made in the image of God. We follow the example of Jesus as we welcome all persons without regard to age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, or economic condition.
We are committed to caring for one another within and beyond the walls of our building, to loving and respecting all people, grounded in grace, not judgment. We will continue to proclaim and live according to Jesus’ commands: Love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself.

Diane Brown and Pastor Joy offer several opportunities to learn more about the decisions of the 2019 special session of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church. These sessions will provide information and give us an opportunity to raise questions, discuss implications, etc.
