You are welcome here

No matter where you are in your life’s journey; regardless of your race, gender, sexual orientation, class or creed; you are welcome in our church. One of the defining characteristics of the UCC is that we join in community by testimonials, not tests of faith. Your beliefs, your understanding of God and Jesus and church are uniquely yours, as you seek and explore alongside others in community.

God is still speaking

In 1620, when our spiritual forebears prepared to leave Europe for the New World, their pastor, John Robinson, sent them off with this historic commission: “God has yet more light and truth to break forth out of his holy Word.” Almost four centuries later we in the United Church of Christ continue to listen for God’s voice, not only in the Bible and in the best of our faith heritage, but also as we are attuned to the ways God may speak through film and TV, novels and poetry and all the arts, science and the rest of the academic world, other churches and faiths, popular music and even the “social media” – and, of course, always speaking to us as the “still, small voice we hear within us.”

“Never place a period where God has placed a comma; God is still speaking!”
