Join us for worship on Sunday, December 17, at 10:15 a.m.


Today is the Third Sunday of Advent. Our annual Children’s Christmas Pageant will be held during worship. The children of our church school will bring to life the story of the birth of Jesus. They will also lead us as we sing some Christmas songs both familiar and new.

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

 

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


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


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.
