The Open and Affirming Coalition of the United Church of Christ Announces that

June 27 is National Open and Affirming Sunday.

Always celebrated on the fourth Sunday of June, the Coalition created ONA Sunday as an opportunity for congregations to renew their commitment to support LGBTQIA+ neighbors and their families.


Hope United Church of Christ overwhelmingly committed to be an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ on May 22, 2016.


Let’s celebrate the rapid growth of this movement, hold the 1,700 ONA churches and ministries in prayer, and commit to growing the movement until the UCC is not just 33%, but 100% ONA.
