Open and Affirming
When you walk into the room, God joyfully yells out your name the way everyone welcomes "Norm!" on Cheers. God extravagantly welcomes everyone, and so do we.
- Always seek to affirm the person that you are with loving hearts and open minds.
- Follow the way of Christ Jesus with you in loving and being loved by both God and neighbor, with the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit.
- Love you for the person you are by living out our denomination’s promise that “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome at Zion UCC.”
