Welcome to UCCSV
Welcome at the United Church of Christ of Seneca Valley is more than a greeting - welcome is what we do.

As we watch children come forward for the Children’s Time in Sunday worship, our eyes also catch the expectant faces of several of our octogenarians; we're not sure whose smiles are larger. Our welcome includes all ages.

As we hear scripture read in accents telling us that English is not the reader’s first language, serve dinner in the on-going ecumenical ministry known as “The Lord’s Table,” consider questions challenging previously-held assumptions, or listen to panel members discussing Marriage Equality, we are reminded how richly blessed we are by such diversity. Our welcome includes a growing spectrum of the human family.

UCCSV's mission is to provide a welcoming and inclusive spiritual home for those seeking God's presence, preparing us to serve others in Jesus' name. We are an environmentally conscious congregation, engaging with the Spirit through art and music, sharing our resources and working for justice in our community and around the world.

Whether you are navigating the United Church of Christ of Seneca Valley’s website for the first time, or are returning for information concerning worship or some other aspect of our congregation’s ministry, we welcome you. No matter who you are or where you are on your spiritual journey you are welcome here!
