The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a progressive, inclusive protestant denomination that celebrates diversity and community action. UCC churches seek to unite people from all ethnic, racial and social backgrounds. Our churches and ministries are active worldwide, working in communities to promote social justice and better living standards. The UCC has very old roots – we look to the Pilgrims as our faith ancestors. The UCC was formed when the Congregational Christian Church merged with the Evangelical and Reformed Church in 1957. Please check out the denomination’s website at www.ucc.org.
We worship every Sunday at 10:00 am. Don't worry if you're a little late - some of our most experienced members stroll in at 10:15. Ushers are available to help you find a seat if it's a little crowded, and there is also a balcony if you want to sneak in.
Yes, we have a range of accessibility accommodations on the ground floor. An ASL interpreter is available upon request. During worship services, we provide Assistive Listening Devices and large print bulletins. Please ask an usher for assistance.
Some people come dressed in their Sunday best. Others dress more casually. We believe God cares more about the state of our hearts than the state of our wardrobe. You are invited to wear whatever you are comfortable in. In the summer, we try to forego air-conditioning and instead open the doors for a cool breeze; it gets a little warm in the sanctuary so you will want to dress accordingly.
Children and families of all shapes and sizes are welcomed and cherished at MHUCC.
We have both a nursery and a Sunday School for children and
youth. Our nursery is available for infants through two years old and the
attendants are there by 9:30 a.m. If you are not comfortable leaving
your child with the nursery attendants, you are welcome to remain in
worship with your infant. Our goal is for both the parents and the
baby to have an enjoyable experience at MHUCC. Sunday School for
children ages two through high school is also available. More
details are available on the Children and Youth page.
MHUCC celebrates the Eucharist on the first Sunday of every month. All are welcome at the table – the youngest children even join in remembering the last meal Jesus shared with his disciples.
No, we have many friends that regularly attend MHUCC and that's
perfectly okay. Our desire is to help people
grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and honor their
journeys, whether or not they are members. If you aren't ready, we
hope you'll continue to attend services, get connected with others,
serve God through the ministries that are offered, and participate
in other MHUCC events as you desire.
