We welcome all who want to thank God... as well as those who have doubt or do not believe. We welcome tiny infants, grandparents, single people, and families of all configurations.
We welcome those who have no church and those who need strength. We welcome first-time guests who have not been to church since childhood – as well as long-time members who have worshiped with us for decades.
We hope to welcome you one Sunday soon.
We believe that God’s love for humanity is all inclusive and by our common baptism we are brought into union with Christ without distinction.In accordance with this faith, membership in this church is open to all who profess Jesus according to their commitment to the Christian faith and their individual qualifications.We faithfully join in the fellowship of United Church of Christ “Open and Affirming” congregations and Presbyterian “More Light” churches.
Read our 1995 Covenant for Inclusiveness
e are a federated church of Presbyterians and New England Congregationalists. We are two historically related congregations and maintain a certain separateness in our legal identities: each congregation has its own membership book, its own mission contribution, and its own denominational ties. However, we worship together as a single church family. For practical purposes, there is no separation between the two congregations.
Our church family is diverse in age, marital status, sexual orientation, theological outlook and political perspective, but we are united in the belief that a church that attempts to experience the love of God within its community must also be a church that is socially conscious and politically involved. That sometimes leads to controversy and discomfort; but we believe that relevance to human life is more important than a “comfortable pew.”
