TRUMBULL — It was about time, the Rev. Tim Hare said.
Hare, 48, is the pastor of Trumbull Congregational Church, which bills itself as the oldest established church in Trumbull. On Sept. 19, the church’s roughly 150 adult members voted on whether to become “open and affirming.” That is the term used by the United Church of Christ (which the Trumbull church is part of) to denote that a church is welcoming and inclusive of all people, specifically including members of the LGBTQ+ community.
