“Open the gates of justice! I will enter and tell the Lord how thankful I am.” Psalm 118:19
In America, the topic of race continues to be difficult to discuss in many social settings. Very few Christian churches are leading bold and courageous conversations, engaging in direct social activism, and participating in civil disobedience as a way to bring attention to and disrupt racist systems and structures.
The call to be a multiracial and multicultural church is an acknowledgement that racial justice is the inclusiveness of all humans and never excludes anyone based on skin color, culture or ethnic origin. The United Church of Christ stands in solidarity with the creation narrative in Genesis 1:26-27, which clearly outlines what matters to God—all of humankind and a just world for all. God created humankind in God’s image and likeness, women and men are image bearers, sharing equal status as human beings. God did not create race, racism, superior groups of humans, and hierarchical and hegemonic social structures.

NOTE: Because of the pandemic we are unable to meet for worship in the sanctuary at this time. Each Sunday morning there will be a video service on this website, YouTube, and on our FaceBook Page. You are also invited to join the congregation for Sunday worship on ZOOM at 11 AM. There will also be other special worship opportunites this month. We will be happy to email you a copy of the worship if you will share your email with us. Know you are in our prayers. Blessings, Pastor David
We want to return to worshiping together in person as soon as it is considered safe to do so. We are using the County Threat Level to determine when that might happen. We will continue to monitor the threat level each week to determine when it will be safe to return. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
