Open and Affirming Church / Todo Son Bienvenidos

  • Pilgrim-St. Luke's Church has been granted "Open and Affirming" or "ONA" Status by the United Church of Christ, as a result of our church adopting our Covenant of Inclusion in 2002. 
  • We welcome all persons. Everyone will find a safe and scared space where they can celebrate who they are as we are all uniquely created to be – a child of God. 
  •  Lesbian, gay, bisexual, straight, transgendered and queer persons are welcome.
  •  Married, single or partnered? Everyone has a place at the Table of Christ.
  •  All types of families are welcome and affirmed by God and celebrated by us.
  • What’s missing? You and your family. Join us!

Stepping Out: Embracing Differences




This church embraces differences in ability! Differences in language and culture too.



  • There is a ramp at the rear of the church, and two designated parking spaces for persons using a wheelchair or who have trouble walking or using stairs.
  •  If you need assistance, please call the church ahead of time and we will try to arrange someone who can help.
  • If you would like a space reserved in the parking lot, we may be able to put out a traffic cone to hold your space.
  • Also, we may be able to arrange a wheelchair for you to use in the church and to transport you to and from your car, if notified well in advance.
  • We will do our best to make you feel welcome as our home is yours too.


Special hearing devices are available for use in the Sanctuary.  Please feel free to ask a Church Usher for assistance.



  • We offer large-print bulletins at Worship.  A Church Usher would be pleased to help you receive one. 
  • If you need assistance navigating the church, you are welcome to ask anyone at church for assistance. We're friendly. Just ask.  We're here for you.
  •  Also, if you call the church in advance, we can arrange someone specifically designated to help you.


  • We understand that not all types of ability are the same.  Please contact us and let us know your special circumstance, so we can help meet your needs.

The church phone number is 716-885-9443.  Please feel free to contact us if we can help in any way to make your time with us more convenient and enjoyable.
