Reconciling Ministries Network is a collection of churches, individuals,  campus ministries and communities, across and beyond the United Methodist Church, who are working for the full participation of all LGBTQ+ people throughout the life and leadership of the Church.

Reconciling ministries are required to affirm this statement.

“We celebrate God’s gift of diversity and value the wholeness made possible in a community equally shared and shepherded by all. We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more. We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed.”

After a period of study, discussion and discernment, the First United Methodist Church of Fremont voted to join the Reconciling Ministry Network in 2018.
