Nursery care is provided during worship for the youngest children. Children through grade 4 may stay in worship through the children's message and then go to Children's Church. Older children and youth are encouraged to remain in worship.

Our Mission


Whoever you are, where ever you are on life's journey you are welcome here. 

The Congregational United Church of Christ is an “Open and Affirming” congregation. 

We know, with Paul, that as Christians, we are many members, but are one body in Christ, members of one another, and that we all have different gifts. With Jesus, we affirm that we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves, that we are called to act as agents of reconciliation and wholeness within the world and within the Church itself. We recognize the presence of ignorance, fear and hatred in the Church and in our culture, and covenant to not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, nor any other irrelevant factor, and we seek to include and support those who, because of this fear and prejudice, find themselves in exile from a spiritual community. 

We welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people to worship with us, join our congregation, and take an active role in our leadership, ministry, and mission.
