We are an OPEN & AFFIRMING (ONA) member of the United Church of Christ.
ONA churches have adopted an “Open and Affirming” covenant welcoming all people, without regard to sexual orientation and gender identity, into the life and ministry of the congregation.
In the United Church of Christ, we are part of a tradition that has no hierarchy. We have no bishops or popes, no elders or superintendents. While the pastor seeks to faithfully illuminate scripture and make it relevant to our daily lives, ultimately she speaks TO us and not necessarily FOR us. We believe that it is up to all Christians to take seriously and wrestle with the ancient stories of our faith in light of current experience and knowledge. However, this is not a solo activity. As a community, we hold one another up and we hold one another accountable, inspiring and lovingly challenging one another as best as we are able. We journey together.
