ABOUT OUR LGBTQ MINISTRIES

Church of the Savior UCC is an Open and Affirming United Church of Christ congregation. We proudly welcome persons of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions into the full life and ministry of our faith community.

Open and Affirming is the way many in the United Church of Christ (UCC) declare welcome and inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) persons, their families, friends, and allies. No matter your sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression you are WELCOME here!

The message of love and compassion, justice and peace are at the very core of the life and ministry of Jesus. Open and Affirming (ONA) ministries and resources are rooted in that Gospel message. The testimonies of these ministries proclaim the truth of God’s power to transform cultures of hate and violence into communities of healing and reconciliation. They give witness to God’s continuing testament and how the gifts of God are being liberated for service in the world.
