Open & Affirming Team

“No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey…no matter who you love…

you are welcome here.”  

-Welcome Statement of the United Church of Christ


The Open and Affirming (ONA) Team wants to share a testimony from one of our transgender friends about the LGBTQ Support Group that has been meeting monthly at the church and via zoom:


“Your group allowed me to get in touch with being me and expressing it in public and that feeling is so valuable to someone like me. It also allowed me to share my progress as I transitioned with excitement and zeal because I actually felt that you were listening to me and excited for my progress is really needed for the transgender community to have such wonderful, openminded and caring people to gather with.” 

-From a Support Group member


We look forward to being able to meet again in person! The LGBTQ Support Group is open to members, friends, and family of all LGBTQ people age 18 and older.  This is a non-religious group.

Please reach out to for more information.

Embraced by the love of God in Christ, our mission is to love and serve our world. We seek to grow in Christ’s family through our journey inward towards faith and knowledge outward, toward love and justice, always rooted and nurtured in worship.
