We are a community of children of a God who created us to flourish in this world, to live in interconnection with one another, and creation through intentional relationships grounded in love, justice, and peace, no exceptions.
The vision of our ministry with one another and in the world is grounded in God’s vision embodied in Jesus Christ and the Good News of his message and actions: an extravagant welcome to ALL at the table of God, the acknowledgment and value of the diversity of people and their gifts, and the promise of life in abundance, freedom, and wholeness for all of creation.

The UCC is launching a national art contest for children and youth that will be part of a larger campaign that will generate hope in making a difference when confronting the climate crisis.
How to participate?: Draw or paint about climate hope, environmental justice, or protecting the Earth. Sunday school classes and youth group participation are encouraged.
The art contest winners will have their art displayed on the UCC’s Climate Hope Postcards. UCC congregations will then collect thousands of postcards to pressure Congress and the White House to take sufficient action to combat the ongoing climate and environmental justice crises.
