Open and Affirming

Open and Affirming (ONA) is a UCC designation for congregations which make a public covenant of welcome into their full life and ministry to persons of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. Learn more

Our Covenant: Through God's grace, we seek to welcome all persons into our church family by removing barriers and embracing differences of sexual orientation, gender identities and gender expressions, marital status, age, mental and physical ability, as well as racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We encourage all to share their diverse gifts in the full life and ministry of our church.

God is Still Speaking

We believe that God is still speaking and its our responsibility to listen. "Still speaking" is a short hand form of "God is still speaking," a campaign by the UCC to remind us that God still has a lot more to say. Learn more
