Welcome to the United Church of Christ – a community of faith that works to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. The UCC was founded in 1957 as the union of several different Christian traditions. Our motto “that they may all be one” is Jesus’ prayer for the unity of the church.
The UCC is one of the most diverse Christian churches in the United States, a progressive denomination that engages heart and mind. While preserving the relevant portions of heritage of history dating back to the Pilgrims of the 16th century, the UCC has proven itself capable of moving forward, tying faith to social justice and shaping its theology and service in an every-changing world. You can find a lot more information about the UCC on the national website. Our motto at St John’s United Church of Christ – “Wherever you are on life’s journey – you are welcome here! And we mean it!
