  • This Sunday at UCCSV - 11/22/20

    It's Consecration Sunday and we're celebrating what it means to be a community of faith grounded in joy. This Thanksgiving week we're considering how gratitude can feed our joy and help balance our lives and what giving has to do with that. We're looking to the year to come and imagining all the ways in which we could live out the call to be a church that joyfully shares the good news of God's love. That task is made more complicated by the struggles from this past year. For many of us Thanksgiving will look much different than it usually does. Are there ways we can still be together for joy with God, our family and friends, and our church? What is God calling us to do and be and give right now?

     
    As always bring a candle with you as you sit down to worship. The Zoom room opens at 9:30 and worship starts at 10am.

  • 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.
