MISSION STATEMENT
Union Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, is a community of diverse believers, sharing with one another and accepting of all.  With God's unconditional love, we come together to worship, to nurture each other and to reach out with love to all persons.

PRIORITIES
MEANINGFUL WORSHIP: Through scripturally founded, theologically informed and liturgically engaging worship, we will offer praise, honor, glory and thanksgiving to God and open ourselves to God’s gracious gifts of forgiveness, wisdom, faith, hope and love.

SPIRITUAL GROWTH:  We will seek to grow in our knowledge, understanding and love of God both through regular worship, careful study of theology and scripture and through loving service to one another, our community and the world.

STRENGTHENED PARTICIPATION:  We will invite and encourage both our members, friends, neighbors and newcomers to become active participants in the worship and work of Union Church.  In keeping with Biblical teaching, we will encourage members and friends to be faithful stewards of their time, talent and treasure, both in their lives in Union Church and in their lives in the world.

CARING FOR ALL:  We will exemplify the love of Christ by reaching out to one another in compassionate care through personal relationships and through our established ministries.  In covenant with the United Church of Christ we will extend our care to our local community and to the world through our support of both local and world missions.
