HUGS (Humans Unifying Gender and Sexuality)
We are an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. We practice extravagant welcome and accept lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender folks to find their spiritual home here.
As Christians, we profess that we are created in the image of God. In this image, we make a lifelong journey toward deeper faith, faithfulness, and wholeness. As a church, we seek continually to integrate God’s ongoing revelation with new knowledge and understandings of our lives and times. In our religious life and education, we seek to equip the faithful for this journey in all its possibilities.
As people in the United Church of Christ (UCC), we affirm that sexuality and a spirituality are intricately connected and that both are gifts from God. The actions of our General Synods, conferences, associations, congregations, and councils support this.
