About Open and Affirming

We have roots


Our roots are deep and nourishing, but we are not stuck in the past. 


Proud of our heritage, we are also listening for the Still Speaking God who is with us now and into the future.


Why not join us as we look to a future with hope?

Part of the United Church of Christ, we are in a family of some pretty interesting people. Check us out to see just how rich and varied we are.
