We are a congregation of the United Church of Christ
The United Church of Christ is a church of firsts, weaving God’s message of hope and extravagant welcome with action for justice and peace. We were the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, the first to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry. We were in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement. Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country.
We are an Open and Affirming Congregation
Open and Affirming is the United Church of Christ’s designation for congregations that welcome LGBTQ+ members. Many Open and Affirming congregations, including us, have welcoming statements that go far beyond sexual orientation and gender identity. We strive to welcome and celebrate all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, faith, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or family status, age, or ability.
We are a Non-Creedal Congregation
The United Church of Christ is a non-creedal denomination. There is no list of things that people have to believe in order to be part of our community. But while we might not have a list, we do have things that tend to bind us together. We often use seven phrases from scripture and tradition to describe these. You can read about them here.
Get to Know Us Better
The best way to get to know about us is to hang out with us. If you’re comfortable doing that in person, you can join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 9:30am. If you would prefer to see us in action from distance first, you might want to check out our YouTube channel, where you can find videos of sermons and entire worship services.
