  • Black Lives Matter

    As a church community we declare that "Black Lives Matter". We reject racism in all its forms. We work towards being the church in the world by promoting justice, standing with the oppressed, and loving our neighbor. While we have much work to do on ourselves in terms of our own biases, and in dismantling the structures of our society that uphold white supremacy, we know we are not alone in this work and God is equipping us and empowering us even now to continually do better.

    To understand more about why it's important to proclaim that black lives matter we invite you to read this article published by our denomination: https://www.ucc.org/justice_racism_black_lives_matter.

  • This Sunday at UCCSV - 6/7/20

    It's Children and Youth Sunday and we're celebrating our children and youth, their gifts, and all the things that they bring to our community. Children and youth will participate in the service and have sent us videos they want to share with the community.  We will also share communion together and try to find moments of peace and fun in the midst of what it is a very trying time. This is a chance to renew our souls and spirits. Come join us!
     
    You are invited to have a candle with you as you come to worship and bring your own sense of childlike wonder! The Zoom room opens at 9:30am and worship begins at 10am.
