On January 26, 2020, the members of the Deerfield Community Church voted overwhelmingly to approve the following Open and Affirming covenant: We, the members of Deerfield Community Church, United Church of Christ, believe that all people are created in God’s image and therefore are loved, valued, and blessed by God. We welcome all who seek to follow or understand Jesus Christ. This community of faith is an Open and Affirming congregation which welcomes persons of all races, ethnic backgrounds, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, physical or mental abilities, family structures and marital status, faiths, and socio-economic background. All persons are invited to fully share and participate in the membership, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities, blessings and joys of our church family. Trusting in God’s grace and with guidance from the Holy Spirit, we are committed to the on- going work of inclusivity and discovering ways to live out our support and respect for all people as God’s beloved children.
