River Hills UMC adopted a Statement of Inclusion on Jan. 28, 2020:
We, the members of River Hills United Methodist Church, believe in the sacred worth of all human beings, and as such, we believe that all of God's children should be able to have full participation in the United Methodist Church, including ministry and marriage. We disagree with the decisions by our denomination that continue to discriminate and exclude both LGBTQIA+ people and those called to support their full life in the United Methodist Church. We look forward to joining with like-minded churches and conferences to explore a more inclusive Methodism that includes all people, united by our love of Jesus Christ, and steeped in a Wesleyan heritage. In the meantime, we will continue to be a connectional United Methodist Church by supporting its mission and ministries.
We welcome all of God's children and celebrate diversity that comes in our creation. We seek to faithfully live into the motto of an inclusive church by being a place of truly, "Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors."
