Congregational Church of Christ

United Church of Christ

"A little church with a big heart!"

WHO WE ARE



We are a close-knit community of folks seeking to follow Jesus Christ,

caring and loving for one another, and striving to make a difference in the lives of others.

The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action.  With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world.  The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where

"…they may all be one" (John 17:21).

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Come as you are


We want you to come just as you are. When you walk through our doors you may see people in suits and ties, but you will also see people in jeans and t-shirts. We want to make sure when you visit you are comfortable and that is all that matters to us. As you come through our doors, we want to make sure you feel loved and welcomed. If you ever need anything, always feel free to connect with us. We love to hear from our new visitors.
