South Newbury Union Church
votes to be and Open and Affirming Church! 

At our Annual Meeting on June 27, following a year-long process seeking to discern whether we want to be an "Open and Affirming" congregation of the United Church of Christ, the congregation voted unanimously to be an "Open and Affirming Church."   "Open and Affirming" (also known as "ONA") designates congregations who seek to be fully welcoming and inclusive of all persons, in particular people who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer.
