Join us for worship on Sunday, June 26, at 9:15 a.m.


We’re working our way through Paul’s letter to the Galatians. This morning we come to Paul’s outraged outburst: “O foolish Galatians!” He’s upset –and with good reason. Members of the congregation were leaving their newfound freedom to live in love toward one another and all people, hoping that they would bring order and moral security to themselves and their community. “Nonsense!” Paul says. “Foolishness!” And it still is today when we hope that what we do will earn God’s favor and make God act as we want God to act.


Scripture Lessons:        I Kings 8:22-23; Galatians 2:15-3:2

Sermon:     “Foolishness and Faithfulness”

The Rev. William Lovin preaching


Solo: “In the Garden”            Kevin Koepnick

Free parking at the Iowa Memorial Union Ramp (Park east end of the 4th level for a one block walk.)

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

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. Join us after worship for good (Fair Trade) coffee and great conversation in Rockwood Hall.

9:15 Worship for everyone

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.
