Worship with us on Sunday
May 8, 2016 at 10:15 a.m.

This morning our choir and organist will joined by soloists and chamber orchestra in a performance of Mozart's Sparrow Mass ("Spatzenmesse") K. 220.  This wonderful, yet brief work, is representative of Mozart's sacred work in Salzburg, and as influenced by Haydn in Vienna. The title refers to violin figures that are reminiscent of a sparrow twittering heard in the mass. 

 

Please join us for for a light but moving Spring special music Sunday. If you would like to contribute to our special music Sunday's please see our director of music, Patrick Zubiate.

Our Mission

OPEN AND AFFIRMING 

Whoever you are, where ever you are on life's journey you are welcome here. 

The Congregational United Church of Christ is an “Open and Affirming” congregation. 

We know, with Paul, that as Christians, we are many members, but are one body in Christ, members of one another, and that we all have different gifts. With Jesus, we affirm that we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves, that we are called to act as agents of reconciliation and wholeness within the world and within the Church itself. We recognize the presence of ignorance, fear and hatred in the Church and in our culture, and covenant to not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, nor any other irrelevant factor, and we seek to include and support those who, because of this fear and prejudice, find themselves in exile from a spiritual community. 

We welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people to worship with us, join our congregation, and take an active role in our leadership, ministry, and mission.
