ONA means that SCUCC has made a public covenant of welcome into our full life and ministry to persons of all sexual orientations, gender expressions, and gender identities.
Here is our new Covenant: "Believing that all people are created in God‘s image, embracing diversity and affirming dignity and worth for every person, we, the Somers Congregational United Church of Christ, are an Open and Affirming Congregation. We celebrate people of all ages, races, cultures, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, family configurations, and physical, cognitive, or emotional abilities. All persons are invited to fully share and participate in leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities, blessings, and joys of our church family."
At SCUCC, All Are Welcomed and Affirmed as beloved children of God!
