UCC offers a variety of ministries that bring people together in the name of Christ. UCC aims to help people develop deep, meaningful and lasting relationships. As the apostle Paul says, “the whole body grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work” (Eph. 4:16). No matter your background, UCC welcomes you and believes that your story will fit somewhere in our story and God’s story.
