The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action.  With more than 5,100 churches and 1.1 million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world.  The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where "…they may all be one" (John 17:21).

Open and Affirming Coalition:  https://openandaffirming.org/

The Open and Affirming Coalition of the United Church of Christ advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in the UCC, and equips UCC congregations to become effective witnesses to Christ’s extravagant welcome. Founded in 1972, the Coalition has helped the UCC reach each of its milestones on the journey towards acceptance and justice for its LGBT and same-gender-loving (SGL)* members.
