First CRC – Grand Rapids, Michigan

Motion approved by Council on January 24, 2023

Recognizing the differences of Biblical interpretations regarding same-sex marriage and acknowledging that we are in a place of uncertainty, we move to invite all members of First Church to full participation in the life and ministry of the congregation. Neither sexual identity nor being in a same-sex relationship will impact a person’s membership or ability to fully participate at First Church.
