Open and Affirming Coalition United Church of Christ
Your tax-free contribution to the Open and Affirming Coalition will grow the Open and Affirming movement in the UCC, strengthen ministry and mission in existing ONA churches, and help us work together for a church and a world where all are welcome, all are wanted, no one is left out.
Your gifts go toward training programs and the churchwide network of ONA consultants to help congregations work toward an ONA covenant in ways that build consensus and reduce conflict. They support a series of webinars and workshops to train ONA churches in the best practices for advocacy, evangelism, communication and growth. Your support helps ONA churches resist attempts to roll back LGBTQ civil rights and advocate for LGBTQ youth, seniors and asylum-seekers.
The Coalition is an independent non-profit that works in close partnership with the UCC’s national ministries. No regular funding is received from Our Church’s Wider Mission. The national ONA program is funded by your contributions.
Please place your gift in the yellow or blue envelope and help UCC churches to be truly welcoming places for all.
