  • Celebrating Our Tenth Anniversary!

    Celebrating Our Tenth Anniversary!

    We spread the message of God’s extravagant welcome, reaching out especially to those who have felt there is no room for them within Christianity and the church – the excluded and alienated, the spiritually homeless, the questioning.

  • All Are Welcome and Celebrated!

    All Are Welcome and Celebrated!

    All persons are welcomed and celebrated, without regard to race, social status, religious belief/practice or lack thereof, gender, physical condition/appearance, or sexual orientation. We are an open and affirming UCC church.

  • Church Garden “Feeding All”

    Church Garden “Feeding All”

    Members tend the church garden. Produce from the garden is donated to F.A.R.M. Cafe in Boone. The cafe feeds all, regardless of means.

  • Why the Comma?

    Why the Comma?

    There's a lot to the UCC Comma. For the UCC, the Comma is a new way to proclaim "Our Faith is 2,000 years old, our thinking is not." The Comma invites us to believe that God speaks through other people, nature, music, art, a theorem, the Bible, and in so many other ways. It reminds us of the unusual religious freedom and responsibility to engage the Bible with our own unique experiences, questions, and ideas.

    Never place a period where God has placed a comma.
    --Gracie Allen, 20th century American comedian
