Education Hour for Adults and Children: Sundays after Worship 

 

 

"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.
