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 a few Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit Trainings on the calendar and they fill up. The training will give you tools for helping groups through tough conversations toward more inclusive community.

If our records are incorrect or if your church is not listed, please let us know. We are not always aware of leadership changes or ministry closings. Help us update our records!
