Open & Affirming Statement
At Lee’s Summit Christian Church, we are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world, called to welcome others as we have been welcomed by God. As Disciples, we find identity at the Lord’s Table, practicing open communion for all and embracing our mission of Building Bridges of Grace from the Welcome Table to Every Table. Our welcome knows no boundaries of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, socio-economic status or any other designation of individuals who have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination by the church and society.
We declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming congregation, professing that all people are God’s children and deserve full inclusion in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments of marriage, communion, baptism, and ordination, responsibilities, and blessing of participation in our congregation. With open hearts, open minds, and open doors, we invite anyone who seeks God’s amazing grace to join our church family.
At Lee’s Summit Christian Church, all are fully welcome, and all means all.
