Kamloops United Church is an Affirming congregation. But what does it mean when we say we are an Affirming congregation? Isn’t every congregation?
Most congregations do their best to be welcoming, but being Affirming goes deeper and is public, intentional, and explicit, in the commitment to diversity and inclusion. Twenty years ago, on May 12, 1996, Kamloops United Church became one of the first United Churches in Canada to declare themselves as being an Affirming congregation.
Now in 2016, we of KUC, a Centre for Community and Spiritual Discovery, continue our journey into living out that commitment to being Affirming. Kamloops United Church is an Affirming Congregation!
