In 1998, after two years of study, our church voted to become an Open and Affirming Church, welcoming all persons to our fellowship regardless of sexual orientation. Open and Affirming (ONA) is the United Church of Christ's designation for congregations, campus ministries, and other bodies in the UCC which make a public covenant of welcome into their full life and ministry to persons of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions.
