Worship with us on Sunday

November 2, 2014
at 10:15 a.m.



Each year on the First Sunday in November, Congregational UCC observes “All Saints Sunday.” This is a time for us to remember and give thanks to God for the lives of those members of Congregational UCC who have died in the past year—and for all the saints.Our worship service on this day is both solemn and joyful, befitting a congregation of people who live in the light of the resurrection. So this is also our annual Jazz Worship Service. With the help of some great UI musicians, we look toward the day when the saints go marching in.

We will also receive our special Neighbors in Need offering this Sunday. Your generous gifts help support projects across our nation, including the Center for Worker Justice here in Iowa City.

Scripture Lessons: Isaiah 25:6-10a; Revelation 7:9-17
Sermon: "Where Do We Take Our Tears?"
The Rev. William Lovin preaching

Anthem: "Big Chief"

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

Nursery care is provided during worship for the youngest children. Children through grade 4 may stay in worship through the children's message and then go to Children's Church. Older children and youth are encouraged to remain in worship.

Join us after worship for good (Fair Trade) coffee and great conversation in Rockwood Hall.

9:15 Christian Education for all ages

10:15 Worship for everyone
Free parking at the Iowa Memorial Union Ramp
(Park east end of the 4th level for a one block walk. )



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.
