How the Open Door Program Works
congregation’s governing body must formally agree to become an AUC Open
Door Congregation. Open
Door Congregations agree to be open and welcoming to AUC members.
AUC will list the congregation as an Open Door Congregation on its web
site and will place a link to the congregation’s web site on the AUC
web site. The AUC
will refer people who make inquiries about congregations to the
congregation if they live nearby.
The AUC will notify its members that live in
the area that the congregation has become an Open Door Congregation. The AUC will note that the
congregation has become an Open Door Congregation in its quarterly
journal, distributed to all members.
Open Door Congregation status is permanent until either the
congregation or the AUC discontinues the status.
The AUC reserves the right to discontinue the
status in the very unlikely event that the congregation is not in fact
open and welcoming to AUC members or if the congregation takes actions
that are inconsistent with its religious or governing principles.
