Whoever you are, and wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.  Welcome home.

We believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Savior, and acknowledge him head of the church.

 

We look to the Word of God in the Scriptures, and to the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, to prosper its creative and redemptive work in the world.

 

We claim as our own the faith of the historic Church expressed in the ancient creeds and reclaimed in the basic insights of the Protestant Reformers. 

 

In accordance with the teaching of our Lord and the practice prevailing among evangelical Christians, we recognize two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion.    - from The United Church of Christ

 

"In gratitude to God, empowered by the Spirit, we strive to serve Christ in our daily tasks and to live holy and joyful lives, even as we watch for God's new heaven and new earth praying, 'Come, Lord Jesus.'"  - From "A Brief Statement of Faith" Presbyterian Church USA

Breaking Open our Hearts and Opening Our Eyes

Creatively interpreting Jesus was a momentary bigot, Rev Bev concludes we can open our eyes to racism. And, although it will break our hearts, we will repent and move toward justice. This is a response to the national “Day of Confession, Repentance, Prayer, and Commitment to End Racism” called by the bishops of the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) following the racist massacre of nine African American parishioners of Emmanuel AME Church in Charlotte, NC, June 2015.

Our Call Story

“What do you want me to do for you?” Imagine that question to you, just you. Never mind the crowd who told you to be quiet. Never mind the past, how you got here, how long you have been beside the way. Jesus, standing still, waiting for you to come to him, asks, “What do you want me to do for you?” “My teacher, let me see again.” Do you notice the shift? No longer does Bartimaeus call Jesus “Son of David,” he calls him Rabbouni, my teacher. Already his vision is restored. The honorary title has transformed to personal relationship. Salvation isn’t theoretical, it is actual. Jesus pronounces the transformation and immediately, newly and rightly seeing, Bartimeaus, no longer beside the way, fo

What Would It Look Like To Live At Peace With The Earth?

The theme in my church this Lenten season is reconciliation. During each of the six weeks a different topic will be discussed and for each of those topics an artist will hang a banner in the church which depicts that topic. The worship committee suggested that I design the banner for the first week which will explore the issue of reconciliation with our environment. My question to consider while designing the banner was, “What would it look like to live at peace with the Earth?” This question was then paired with a scripture verse (Genesis 1:26-31).
