A Declaration of Open and Affirming
Adopted June 9, 2011
Zion United Church of Christ opens its doors in welcome to those in our community who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered, and affirms their right as Christians to share in the love and teachings of Jesus Christ.
By this statement, Zion UCC accepts and takes for its own the General Synod's declaration that our LGBT sons, daughters, friends and neighbors are welcome in the full life and ministry of the church.
