Open and Affirming

In 2008, we declared ourselves an “Open and Affirming” congregation.  This is another way that we understand and practice the inclusivity of God’s love for everyone.

Open and Affirming (ONA) is the United Church of Christ’s (UCC) designation for congregations and other ministries that publicly covenant with one another to welcome into the full life and ministry of the church and create a safe place for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions.

When we say you are welcome here, we mean it!  As we so often say in the UCC:  “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.”
