Our Local Bylaws:

TCCC Bylaws (Rev. Sept 2012)

We are proud to announce our new Open and Affirming Covenant:

We, Tehachapi Community Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, seek to reflect these values as the sacred community. The justice we seek is by its very nature a universal concept, embracing and welcoming all people. We recognize that the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community has been the target of discrimination and judgment and we consciously choose to renounce any discrimination and judgment, by declaring ourselves an
open and affirming (ONA) church, embracing justice and welcoming all people, including people of diverse sexual and gender orientation into the full communion of our church and our friendship.
