New Worship Series: ‘What Shall We Bring?’

April 28-June 9

During this series we will be talking about stewardship in a couple of ways.
How to be good stewards of creation and environmental justice, and also how to be good stewards of this church with time, talent and financial support.

  • As we bring our gifts, our gifts will grow, so each Sunday you will receive a little something during the Invitation to Giving time. So you won’t want to miss a Sunday because each item builds on the next!

Join us on Easter Sunday for sunrise or traditional service!

This is a time of celebration of New Life as the sun rises in the east and lights the world with its brilliance and hope.

For our special Sunrise Easter Service, we gather on the south patio of Community UCC Church at 6:30 a.m., warmed by the fire pit, to share the story and joy of Jesus’s New Life that has touched our lives in so many significant ways.

Come join us in the crisp air of the early morning to become part of this inspiring story.  The service will be followed by a light breakfast and fellowship with new friends and old.  It is a soul-nourishing experience!

  • Sunrise Easter Service, 6:30 a.m. on the patio just south of Henry Hayden Hall
  • Traditional Service, 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary
