Open and Affirming Gathering
Name: Open and Affirming Gathering
Date: June 18, 2019 - June 21, 2019
National ONA Gathering is the biennial family reunion of the Open and Affirming movement in the United Church of Christ! Members of any church or denomination—ONA or not-yet ONA—are welcome to attend. Expect a celebration with exuberant music, inspiring preaching, and workshops that will feed your mind and soul. When the Religious Right and their allies in federal and state governments are renewing their attack on the basic civil liberties of LGBTQ Americans, our growing community needs to respond with confidence, commitment and faith. Much of this National Gathering will focus on how ONA churches can act faithfully And, as is always true at our Gatherings, we’ll explore the intersections of our movement with other movements for social, racial, economic and environmental justice.
