At Prospect Congregational United Church of Christ, we are "Not All Like That!"

We who call ourselves Prospect Congregational UCC are first of all a faith community.  Our weekly worship expresses our primary desire to join together as persons seeking to discover and grow, both in our personal faith journeys and as a community.  Our diversity in our individual roots and reasons suggests our faith as one concerned more with questions rather than simple answers.  As a thinking and celebrating congregation, we are glad to declare ourselves as an open and progressive people.

 

 

 

As part of the United Church of Christ (UCC) Protestant denomination, we draw upon a history which encourages freedom of conscience and relationships of covenant - mutual agreement - with others.  Rather than adhere to strict doctrine, a central UCC tenet states that there is "yet more light and truth" to break forth from God's word and work in our midst.  Prospect Church has a working covenant; the UCC has its own statement of faith that uses verbs to describe God's ongoing activity of creating, calling, and bestowing.

 

"Our diversity in our individual
roots and reasons suggests
our faith as one concerned more
with questions rather than simple answers"
 
 
Our Open and Affirming declaration was born of our searching, thinking theology.  Based on the desire to make a clear welcome to all sexual orientations, Prospect's Open and Affirming statement expands to include other needed affirmations, from race and class to various abilities.  We deeply believe in the many expressions of God's image and presence in our world.  As such, we join with the UCC and one another to work for justice.
 
One other thing: as a small, inclusive and diverse congregation, we celebrate our invaluable 100+ year history with our neighborhood.  Many of us live within a few blocks of the church building and stumbled upon the gem that is Prospect just walking by. Some come for our wonderful music, still others as a place for our children. Whatever the reason, we wonder if we might be just what you're looking for.  Come and see!
