OPEN AND AFFIRMING STATEMENT
We, the members and friends of Boehm’s United Church of Christ, covenant to welcome all as an Open and Affirming (ONA) congregation. Becoming an ONA church in the United Church of Christ means that we promise to publicly welcome, advocate for, and create a safe space for LGBTQIA+ people of faith and questioning youth. Honoring the rich history of our denomination, as a church founded by John Philip Boehm in 1740, we move forward to love as God loves:
“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you should also love one another.” - John 13:34
Therefore we are called to bear witness that each person, in all of our amazing diversity, is a beloved child of God. We welcome people of all abilities, ages, backgrounds, gender identities and expressions, races, and sexual orientations. We invite all to participate fully in the life, leadership, and ministry of this community of faith. With God’s grace we strive to welcome, celebrate, affirm and create a safe place for all.
“No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!”
