Rhinelander UCC Declares Itself an Open and Affirming Church

On Sunday, October 12, 2014 a Special Church  Meeting was held to vote in a secret, written ballot on whether to become an Open and Affirming church.  Primarily, but not exclusively, this would mean that our congregation welcomed gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders, and those questioning their sexuality, into the full life of our congregational community. It had been agreed that there must be a 2/3rd majority of those present and voting in  favor of the statement.  An overwhelming 90% voted to adopt the Open and Affirming Statement.
