Open & Affirming,
Progressive Christian Church
We are part of a national association of congregations called
The United Church of Christ.
We use a few tag lines to communicate our values as a congregation. You will see those tag lines on the margins of this website. Here is what they mean to us:
Just Peace Congregation We understand that Christians at their core are peace makers. Peace Making takes energy and finances and operates out of the understanding that while passivity can be imposed by a strong government, true PEACE emerges from Justice and in our time that especially means Economic Justice.
Open and Affirming Reacting to the history of many church bodies which have officially excluded and/or condemned persons of minority gender identity, we have felt that the evidence of God’s extravagant welcome is a more convincing guide to our choices on this matter. We intend to operate our lives as open to all people of good will and affirming of their contributions to this congregation and the larger community.
Here you will experience a progressive Christian sermon led
by Pastor Leah Robberts-Mosser
and supported by a talented, well-directed choir.
