Statement of Welcome

The Orleans United Methodist Church celebrates our congregation's diversity of ethnicity, race, economic circumstance, age, sexual orientation, family, gender, gifts and ablities.  In accordance with Christ's example, we welcome the full inclusion of all people into the life and ministries of the church.

We are all in different places on our spirit journey, and in order to grow we need to give each other the freedom to be ourselves.  We recognize that attitudes and acts of injustice, discrimination and violence diminish the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We strive to deepen our faith, to sustain and expand our fellowhsip and outreach, and to continue to advocate for justice for all.
