LGBTQ+ Inclusion

“Open and Affirming” is a phrase we use to celebrate and announce our congregations that welcome all people, regardless of sexual identity and gender expression. 

A congregation that is “O&A” will celebrate each person for who they are, never doubting God’s love for them. 

Study of scripture, intentional listening, and official decision-making are all part of the process for being an “O&A” Church.

O&A Congregations are open to everyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
