Join Us for Worship: In-person or via Livestream

Sunday Mornings: 10:00 (Musical Prelude begins at 9:50)

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.


To our pastor and friend, Rev. Mary Sue Evers

For your wisdom, guidance, insight... and humor - whoever and wherever we have been on life's journey, when we faced the best and worst of times, and even just the regular times - you have been a light to help us each find our own spiritual way.

Thank You is not nearly enough.  On October 15th, we will celebrate and launch you with love into your next great adventure.

Congratulations on your retirement!

October 15th

God of power, God of people, you are the life of all that lives, the energy that fills the earth, the vitality that brings birth, the impetus toward making whole whatever is bruised or broken.

In you we grow to know the truth that sets all creation free.

You are the song the whole earth sings, the promise liberation brings, now and forever.

Miriam Therese Winter
