Worship with us on Sunday 
March 1, 2014
at 10:15 a.m.

This morning we hear the story of God's covenant with Abraham and Sarah--a promise not only to them and their descendants but also to all the world. In our worship today we will celebrate the sacrament of communion. In the Congregational UCC tradition, everyone is welcomed at the Lord's Table, regardless of church membership or denominational affiliation.

Scripture Lessons: Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16; Romans 4:13-25
Sermon: "New Names for Everyone"
The Rev. William Lovin preaching

Anthem: "Ave Verum Corpus"   W.A. Mozart

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


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.
