We are an historic congregation of the United Church of Christ with deep roots in the New England Congregational Church. We are a community church, dedicated to serving the needs of our diverse population. Our island setting means that we are closely knit to one another; our heritage is to be engaged with the wider world. We believe that God is still speaking; and that faith, hope, and love have the last word.
Open and Affirming
We acknowledge God’s acceptance of every individual and Jesus’ commandment to love one another. We welcome all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, to worship and enter into the full life and ministry of this church. We strive for justice and equality for all of God’s children in our journey of faith.
Safe Church Policy
We are committed to creating and maintaining programs, facilities and a community in which members, friends, visitors, staff, and volunteers can worship, learn and work together in an atmosphere free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, exploitation or intimidation. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for children and teenagers, and have guidelines in place to ensure this. You may view our comprehensive policy here. If you have questions or concerns, please call us at 348-6602.
Both church buildings are handicapped accessible, have audio amplification, and large print bulletins, which include the day’s hymns.
