A Progressive Faith Community
United Christian Church
Welcome! No matter who you are, or where you are on your life's journey, you are welcome here!
Believers, doubters, seekers, and those questioning, are all welcome in our community of faith, as we unite in Jesus' name in our common quest to be the visible manifestation of a love-centered, justice- seeking, Christian, community of faith.
Statement of Equity and Justice
As a progressive community of faith, United Christian Church recognizes our position of power and privilege in the lineage of the Church which has contributed to:
Christian supremacy - oppressing people of other secular and faith traditions such as Jews, Muslims.
White supremacy - oppressing Black, Indigenous, People of Color.
Homophobia - oppressing the LGBTQIA+ community.
Misogyny - oppressing women.
Ableism - oppressing the disabled and neurodiverse.
Nationalism - oppressing immigrants.
Classism and elitism - oppressing the poor and those without access to education.
And the harm done to creation in seeking dominion over it.
We repent and seek to repair the harm done throughout this history, ancient, modern, and current, and instead enter relationships that will flourish with hope and healing and bring about a world that is equitable and just for all and in which everyone is able to experience a life of abundance and love.
Open and Affirming
We affirm the dignity, worth, importance, and personal gifts of all people—inclusive of gender, sexual orientation, age, race, ethnic background, marital status, economic circumstance, and/or difference of ability. As we continue to learn and grow in understanding, we pledge to provide a safe, supportive community in which all persons—as they share in worship, fellowship, and leadership—may find the guidance and love of God in their lives.
Each of the events below offer opportunities for participation in person or online through Zoom.
Sunday 9:00-10:00 AM
Racial Justice conversations have been important at United Christian Church for many years. Please join us in person, or online Sunday, September 10th at 9:00 am as the Adult Forum resumes with a review of Ibram X. Kendi's book, "How To Be An Antiracist". Whether or not you've read the book, please join us for these enlightening discussions on our efforts to undo and dismantle racism. We will attempt to review 2 chapters each week.
Sunday 10:30-11:30 AM
Each Sunday morning we gather as a community of faith to explore what our faith calls us to do in the modern world. Each of our clergy in residence rotates through as the speaker in turn and we also have speakers from our community or the nearby area with unique perspectives.
Sunday 11:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Immediately after worship we join with one another for a time of conversation and fellowship. We’ll spend around 15-20 minutes sharing and connecting. We hope you’ll come (or stay)!
