About us

 

Congregational United Church of Christ is a growing community of faith with a long, rich history, where No Matter Who You Are or Where You Are on Life's Journey YOU are Welcome Here! We are a LOVING faith community for ALL!  

 

Our members and friends are very service and mission oriented and we offer many opportunities to spread God's love into our community through service to others.  Our worship style is a mixture of traditional with a relaxed, progressive feel and approach.

We are a congregation of the United Church of Christ (www.ucc.org), a mainline Protestant Christian denomination.  

 

Our faith is 2,000 years old. Our thinking is not.

We believe in God's continuing testament. This is why we are committed to hearing God's ancient story anew and afresh in our lives and in the world today. We try to remain attentive to God's creative movement in the world. Religion and science are not mutually exclusive, and your head and heart are both welcomed into our place of worship. We prepare our members and leaders to be engaged in ministry in the present and future church, and we embrace all kinds of communities and new modes of thinking. Why? Because God is still speaking,

 

No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

We believe in extravagant welcome. This is why we insist that God's communion table is open, not closed, and God's gift and claim in baptism are irrevocable. We advocate justice for all. Our congregations extends hospitality as a sign of God's inclusive love. We work with — not against — people of other faiths. Why? Because God is still speaking,

 

Never place a period where God has placed a comma.

We believe our church's mission is to change lives — individually, systemically and globally. We work to make transformation possible in our community, but trust in God's grace.  We are committed to working for justice, peace, equality, accessibility, and sustaining our environment. Why? Because God is still speaking,
