Hope UCC is an Open and Affirming (ONA) Congregation!
Last month we held our Open and Affirming (ONA) congregational vote by mail-in ballot due to the suspension of in person worship. The votes came in – thank you for your wonderful response! On June 25, at their monthly Church Council meeting, our Council ratified the vote: 93 yes votes to accept the ONA Covenant and become an ONA congregation with 6 no votes. With the congregational adoption and affirmation of the following covenant, Hope UCC is officially what we have always known ourselves to be: a congregation who welcomes into life and leadership all of God’s children as they are created - an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ:
Hope United Church of Christ invites and welcomes into our faith community persons of every ability, age, race, nationality, economic and social status, faith background, marital standing, family structure, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression. We commit ourselves to the ongoing work of being an ONA (Open and Affirming) congregation – one that lives out the belief that God is still speaking. With God’s grace, we journey together in Christian faith.
The United Church of Christ has a vision of a just world for all. In this world all are welcomed, everyone is loved and justice is inherent. 3 Great Loves is our denomination’s opportunity to live out our Love of God and vision of a just world for all and express how our Love of Neighbor, Love of Children, and Love of Creation work together to address the inequities in our current world.
Beloveds: Hope UCC will continue to be the church gathered in Spirit and in love via live stream - NOT in person in our building. We are working on our plan to restart in person worship in accordance with state and local safety guidelines in order to keep one another safe and healthy. Gathering in person will not happen for some time. It is our love for one another and our understanding of the data and science that moves our timeline. Your are loved and missed.
