In 2018, Affirm United/ S’affirmer Ensemble welcomed twenty-seven new members to the family. Behind each of these names is a community of faith that moved through an Affirming process, changing and learning as it went. Behind each of these names are dozens or hundreds of people of all ages and stages. And behind each is a commitment to a radical welcome in Jesus’ name. Celebrate this with us!
