Welcome to Embrace United Church of Christ
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here! Embrace United Church of Christ is a vibrant and inclusive spiritual community for all of God’s people. No matter what your faith background, you'll find Embrace UCC a place where you can strengthen your faith and meet others who are on a similar faith journey. At Embrace you will find members of the LGBTQ+ community in full membership and visible leadership roles.
We worship every Sunday at 10 a.m. When you do come for a visit, you'll find many people waiting to welcome you. Please feel comfortable to dress according to your style preferences for worship and expressive of how you choose to present your gender identity. You'll see people in their Sunday finests and people in t-shirts, jeans and tennis shoes. If you arrive a little early, be sure to drop by our Cafe Connect on your way to worship for a cup of coffee and friendly conversation with other first time visitors and members of the church. Our bathrooms which are gender neutral are located just past Cafe Connect in you parked in the front.
We welcome families with gender diverse children. Childcare is available Sunday beginning at 10 a.m., we can have someone earlier if you request. Children come to worship and after the Children's sermon can choose to go with their teachers for what we call breakout sessions. Breakout sessions are typically a brief story telling or activities. Children return to worship after the sermon. They can return after worship for a more structured educational offering. We like to hear what our emerging generations think and feel. Children, Teen and Adult education and Parents groups meet after worship from 11:30-12:15. Confirmation sessions and field trips are offered once a month on a weekend evening for middle school and high school ages. Designated baby holders and journey companions for older children can be arranged with advance notice should you want your child nearby in worship but need a little assistance. Many pre-teens and teenagers stay in worship with their family.
When you're ready, pick up a copy of our weekly worship bulletin and prepare for an uplifting service that will leave you refreshed and renewed for the week!
