MUMC Reconciling Ministries

Medford United Methodist Church is a Reconciling Congregation who celebrates God’s gift of diversity, believing that all people are created in the image of God. As God’s beloved children, all are worthy of God’s love and grace.

We welcome, affirm and include humanity’s entire spectrum of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, family configuration, race, ethnicity, age, faith, history, education, physical and mental ability, economic, marital, social and citizenship status. We believe God’s people share in all opportunities equally, including marriage and ordination.

We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic and political inequities; and we recognize that despite the many differences among us, we can love alike even though we may not think alike.

We proclaim this statement of welcome to all who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in church and society. As followers of Jesus, we are committed to the pursuit of justice and will stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed. We invite all people to join us in our faith journey toward greater love, understanding and mutual respect.
