Jesus extended his welcome and love to all. This teaching is the center of who we are as a congregation and is the value that led us in May 2005 to become an Open and Affirming Church (ONA for short). We welcome all those who come to worship God and declare ourselves to be open to all for participation in the full life and ministry of the church regardless of age, race, gender, religious background, physical/mental abilities, or sexual orientation. We strive to be affirming of all people as children of God, and to provide a safe physical, emotional, and spiritual haven. As a declared "Open and Affirming" congregation, we commit ourselves to work to end ignorance, fear, hatred, prejudice, and discrimination against all people.
Throughout the rest of 2018 we are exploring anew - through worship, music, prayer, education, mission, scripture, and art - what it is to be Open and Affirming.
