WELCOMING FAITH AND SPIRIT

Affiliation: United Church of Christ


DETAILS

Live Justly. Love Abundantly. Walk Humbly.
Land of the Sky United Church of Christ has extravagant welcome at its core. We affirm people from all walks of life into the full life and leadership of the church. While this claim is for each and every beloved child of God, it is particular in its celebration of the LGBTQ+ community. The wider United Church of Christ calls its bodies to claim the designation of Open and Affirming in the local congregation, as they so desire. Having been founded out of the ethos of extravagant welcome and living as an Open and Affirming congregation from its beginning in May 2009, the Leadership Team at Land of the Sky UCC voted unanimously on March 20, 2011 to embrace this designation as one of the many ways we live out of our mission to Love Abundantly.
Loving Abundantly
As a community living into the unity for which Jesus prayed, we welcome the beautiful spectrum of God’s people-of every race, nationality, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, age, and ability-into the full life of the church. We desire to love abundantly by covenanting to live lives that are reconciled to God, self, and neighbor. We seek to welcome the stranger as one through whom we might learn a deeper truth about the God who is love. Together, we participate in acts of mercy to witness to God’s love in the world through Jesus Christ.

Siljoy Maurer

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
