Policy Statement

Excerpt: "In a faith community following the Third Way, it is understood that people with same-sex attraction, seeking to be faithful to God, make differing  choices: some to remain celibate in order to honor God, some to be married to members of the opposite gender, some to enter same-sex covenantal relationships.  Each person is honored and supported in the decisions they have made, 'unto the Lord.'"

Notes

Note from church:

"“Blue Ocean Faith Ann Arbor was founded because of Vineyard USA’s 2014 statement against LGBTQ+ inclusion. The church is led by two co-pastors one married, straight man (Ken Wilson) and one married, lesbian woman (Emily Swan). All are welcome at our table, in the pulpit, in other leadership roles, in marriage and in the general life of the church. The congregation and the church board are made up of straight and LGBTQ+ people.”
