What is Open and Affirming?

"Open and Affirming" (ONA) is the designation for congregations in the United Church of Christ that have adopted a public covenant that welcomes LGBT people fully into the church's life and ministry. Churches become ONA to send a clear message that God's welcome is for all people and that this particular church is a safe place for the LGBT community.



No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you're welcome here...
