Who We Are
Living Water United Church of Christ is a community of people who are followers of Jesus deeply rooted within the traditions of the African American Church. We have become a multicultural multiracial household of faith. We believe that in God's Beloved Community all of humanity has been created with a deep and intrinsic value. Each human being brings to the world gifts and graces that enhance other human beings' existence in the world. To that end, Living Water United Church of Christ welcomes and celebrates all of humanity regardless of race, color, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, family structure, age, faith background, educational status, economic status, physical or mental ability, national origin, culture or marital status within the full life of the congregation. We affirm everyone's ability to partake and share in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, blessings and responsibilities of this congregation of Jesus Christ.

The Human Rights Campaign, in a report released today, calculated that 102 transgender people have been killed in the U.S. over the past five years — including 25 this year. Its report, jointly sponsored by the Trans People of Color Coalition, was issued ahead of Monday's annual Transgender Day of Remembrance observations, commemorating the hundreds of transgender people killed worldwide each year. Many ONA congregations are observing this Sunday, Nov. 19, as Transgender Remembrance Sunday. ADVERTISING
