We recognize that each of us offers our own unique perspectives, experiences, gifts, and talents in support of the work of The Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ irrespective of physical differences or artificially constructed social divisions. To that end, we affirm the rights and responsibilities of full participation in the ministry of The Maine Conference of The United Church of Christ of people of any sexual orientation or expression, gender identity or expression, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, marital standing, physical and mental health status, economic status, family structure, or any other label that would seek to divide rather than to unite.
