Open and Affirming Sunday


It's been 6 years since New Journey

declared ourselves to be Open and Affirming. 

Let's celebrate on Sunday! 

Wear your most festive attire and

we'll remember who we are, who's we are,

and why we made the declaration.

On May 20, 2018, a Special Meeting of New Journey UCC was held and voted on a resolution put before the Congregation by the Open and Affirming Team to declare New Journey UCC Open and Affirming.  This Resolution was approved:

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that New Journey United Church of Christ, declares itself to be an Open and Affirming congregation.  In keeping with the resolution, New Journey UCC, shall adopt the following statement and display this statement in various forms of communication including print and on the church web site, when the full statement is desired.

“New Journey UCC, an inclusive community engaged in Christ’s journey of love, values all of God’s children and welcomes the gifts that each brings to our local church. We welcome and commit to help all people to participate fully in the life, membership, worship, fellowship, leadership and sacraments of New Journey UCC.

This welcome includes all persons of every race, age, gender, marital status, physical or mental ability, economic status, nationality, sexual orientation, identity or expression.

We pray for God’s guidance in this journey of faith and learning as we commit to opposing discrimination and working for justice in the lives of all people.”
