Happy Anniversary to the United Church of Christ - June 25, 2021
Our denomination will celebrate its 64th Anniversary on June 25, but our history goes back much further than that. We can trace our roots to Jesus and his first Disciples and the birth of the Christian Church on the first Pentecost. That means we are still a young denomination, but we have strong, old roots. In 1957 two smaller denominations – the Congregational Christian Church and the Evangelical and Reformed Church merged together to form what became the United Church of Christ. Ours is a rich and beautiful history of tradition and innovation, of diversity and unity, of worship and mission. I love the UCC and I love its motto! Let's live it together!
