Open & Affirming

In February 2014, the congregation at St. James voted unanimously to become an Open and Affirming Congregation.  The St. James ONA Statement begins:  

The people of St. James United Church of Christ in Havertown, Pennsylvania, affirm our belief that every person has dignity and worth and is a beloved child of God..... We welcome all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals and condemn all acts of violence and discrimination against people because of their sexual orientation or gender identification...
