Community United Church
Community United Church is an Open and Affirming Christian congregation. Our faith teaches us that diversity is part of the handiwork of God. Because we follow God in the ways of Jesus Christ, and with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we are proudly LGBTQ+ affirming. Indeed, we strive to be a community where all are welcome, inclusive of people's socio-economic status, race and ethnicity, age, ability, and/or faith traditions. Here, we believe faith should be shared like an offering with opened hands. We believe in mystery and grace. In this life, we believe divine love should make us more hospitable to all. We believe the same love requires justice and mercy. And we dare to believe that in our ever-evolving and changing world… God is in us, and around us …and… that this God is still speaking...
God calls us to be an Open and Affirming Christian congregation devoted to the Gospel of Christ and to the Holy Spirit's gifts of faith, hope, and love. We do so that all people may be assured of the grace of God, and to find that through worship, study, fellowship, and service.
