South Newbury Union Church
launches Open and Affirming Process
Our congregation is about to begin a process enabling us to discern if we want to be an "Open and Affirming" congregation of the United Church of Christ. "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. This process has been authorized by our Deacon Board and will be supported by ONA resources from the New Hampshire Conference and the ONA Coalition of the UCC.
