We celebrate your proclamation of welcome. May you continue living into your identity as open & affirming.

Lift up your anniversary in worship; collect a special offering to support Open & Affirming Ministry. Examine your practices: how are you living into your O&A identity?

Want to learn about the welcoming journey? Is it the right time to begin or resume the work? If you want information about and support for the welcoming journey, contact us. We have two Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit Trainings on the calendar this spring, March 16 and April 22.

If our records are incorrect or if your church is not listed, please let us know. We are not always aware of some ministry closings and our O&A directory is under construction as the new website is in process. Help us update our records!
