Special Announcement from Mary Sue Evers

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

We are a progressive, open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, rooted in God's love, mercy and justice.  

We are a community of growing families, couples and singles, kids and teens, young adults, mid-lifers  and grandparents... and we celebrate our diversity of spiritual background, sexual orientation, race and abilities.

Join us for worship and celebration in person on Sundays, via livestream on our YouTube channel, and on Wednesday evenings, when we share a brief Vespers service on Facebook.

We look forward to meeting you!  No matter how you join us, we hope you will find music that is inspiring, sermons that are relevant, and a community that is genuinely welcoming.

Welcome to CHUCC!  We're glad you are here.

INVOCATION

May 28th

Beloved God, hear our individual and collective prayers of confession and
confusion.

We do not do the things we wish we would do, but we so often do the things we wish we would not… and how we grow weary of it.

Fire up our spirits with your Spirit and grant us a new chance, a new perspective, a new start.

Hear our prayers in the silence and receive them in your great heart . . . .

Amen.
