Guided by Jesus Christ who summarized the demands of faith saying, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind… and you shall love your neighbor as yourself,” we the Trumbull Congregational Church declare ourselves Open and Affirming.  We welcome people of any age, race, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, economic status, marital status, physical, emotional and mental capacity, and those in traditional and non-traditional families as equally valued members of our community and unique expressions of God’s image.  In keeping with the priorities of the United Church of Christ and the Southern New England Conference we covenant with one another to extend a loving Christian welcome to all to participate fully in the life of our church – its worship, sacraments and blessings, its leadership, stewardship and fellowship, its mission and its ministries.  Whoever you are and wherever you are on life’s journey you are welcome here.
