Q. Can we have our Civil Union performed at Second Congregational Church?
We are proud that our church was the first UCC congregation in Vermont to become an “open and affirming church” meaning that we welcome all people of faith, or in search of faith, without regard to age, race, sex, economic condition, disability or sexual orientation. We invite you attend worship here to get a “feel” for the pastor and place. If you are coming from out of the area, you may contact the pastor about performing your Civil Union. The same guidelines apply as for weddings–If you have, or are actively seeking, a relationship with God, the pastor would be happy to meet with you and your partner. If a civil ceremony would have more integrity for you, we sugggest you consider having your ceremony performed by a Justice of the Peace. If there are no other events scheduled for that day, it may still be possible to hold your civil union in our church.
