On April 30, 2017, the members of the Orange Congregational Church voted to join the Open and Affirming Movement in the United Church of Christ. In preparation for this vote, for the last year and a half church members—including youth—have listened to speakers, joined in discussions, and participated in Bible studies. The church’s Open and Affirming covenant states that it welcomes, respects and affirms all people regardless of their sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, cultural background, religious background, nationality, age, marital status, economic circumstances or physical, emotional or mental ability.
All are welcome to join us for Summer Worship, which begins on July 2nd and continues through August 27th. There will be one service at 9:00 am in the Sanctuary. Summer Church School will take place twice a month: 7/23, 8/6, 8/27. The Crib Room will continue to be open every Sunday during the summer.
