United Church of Christ (UCC)—what is that and in what do you believe?

How do I become a member?
Worship with us for a while. You'll know when you're ready to join. When you are, just tell Pastor Shelly that you are ready, and she will meet with you.
We're not members—can we have our children baptized at your church?
In our tradition, baptism of infants and children mark their inclusion into the community of faith and Christ's claim upon their lives to be lived out in the local church. Therefore, it is important that their parents be a part of the congregation. Both the parents and the congregation make promises to one another and to God – we call that a covenant. This is an important relationship, therefore, we would encourage you to find a church home, hopefully with us, before you undertake this important task.
We're not members—can we still get married at your church?
Yes. Please contact Pastor Shelly as soon as possible in advance of your ceremony to discuss the possibilities of celebrating "your day" with us.
