About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to live the good news of Jesus Christ by welcoming all people, growing spiritually, helping people in need, creating community and celebrating life!

Our Beliefs

We believe in the holy Trinity: Creator, resurrected Christ and Holy Spirit.
We believe that each person is unique and valuable.
We believe that each person is on a spiritual journey and that each of us is at a different stage in that journey.
We believe that God embraces all persons equally.
We strive to be an honest representation of the radical inclusion of the New Testament.
We believe that taking the Bible seriously means it cannot always be taken literally.
We believe that God calls us to be servants in the service to others.

Communion

Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month and other special occasions. We welcome all people, regardless of your religious affiliation, to join us at Christ’s table.

Baptism

In the United Church of Christ, people are baptized either as children or adults. Baptism with water and the Holy Spirit is the mark of their acceptance into the care of Christ’s church, the sign and seal of their participation in God’s forgiveness, and the beginning of their new growth into full Christian life and faith.

Faith In Action

We support Paducah Cooperative Ministry in providing food and shelter for the homeless. We work with the Community Kitchen to provide free meals to hungry people. We support Heifer International which provides livestock to poor families all over the world to help them feed and support themselves.

Our Denomination

Our congregation is proud to be part of the United Church of Christ – a socially active, progressive, ecumenically-minded mainline Christian denomination. We are welcoming, open, and inclusive. With a rich history tying faith to social justice, the UCC continues to challenge its members to explore cutting edge theology and service to the world. For more information about UCC, visit our denominational website at www.ucc.org and www.stillspeaking.com.

Our Congregation

We are not concerned with what you wear, and hope that you will feel free to ask questions and get honest answers. You do not have to pretend to understand and believe things that you do not. No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you will find a welcoming spiritual home here.

There is no pressure to join – ever. If you are interested in becoming a member of our church, please call the church at 207-442-3722.
