The Open and Affirming (ONA) Committee has been working hard to bring our church  opportunities to learn more about the Open and Affirming process.  On June 2, 2019 we were honored to have Karen Holcomb-Merrill, a member of First Congregational UCC Grand Ledge here to answer questions after our worship.  Grand  Ledge UCC has been an Open & Affirming church since 2007 and Karen served on their ONA Committee.  We enjoyed your questions and much discussion on this topic.

May 19th we were honored to have Rev. Liz Miller, pastor of East Lansing’s Edgewood United Church (UCC) preach to our congregation. (read and hear her sermon HERE)  Liz also brought a few members of her congregation to speak and answer questions about the ONA process at coffee hour.  Edgewood became and Open and Affirming church in 1998 and are a valuable resource for us as we move through our own ONA process.
