Welcome to South Congregational Church: Our Faith Community

WelcomeSouthChurch

Welcome to South Congregational Church, a member of the United Church of Christ. We are a community that belongs to the Christian tradition, a river that has run through history giving life to individuals, communities and societies since ancient times, growing the fruit of love and peace, joy and justice.

The river of our faith is a conversation, prompted by the Spirit, which flows through many questions: Who is God and what is God’s will? What does it mean to be human? How do we recognize our differences and stay in relationship? Is there meaning in suffering? How can people of different faiths live peacefully together? What is the deepest joy? This conversation, begun in our scripture, the Hebrew and Christian testaments, continues today and calls our voices to join in. In the words of the U.C.C., “God Is Still Speaking”: to us individually and as a congregation.

Our high water mark is the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ: Who proclaimed that love of God and neighbor are the foundation of the law and the prophets; Who showed us the way to break the cycle of violence by forgiving those who crucified him; Whose resurrection gives us hope in all things; and Whose Spirit ignited the church and moves among us today.

We are guided by: The Word of God that can be discovered in the words of scripture; The centrality of the worship of God; Mission to the world; and Hospitality to any and all who would want to be part of such a faith community.

Faith is more important to us than belief. Faith is the willingness to trust that we belong to God, that mysterious presence who challenges and comforts us from the center of all things and through whom we all belong to the world. Beliefs are intellectual constructs about that presence and, while they are important, are secondary. In our river of conversation we agree to disagree about particular beliefs, yet we are united by one goal: that God’s “will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

You are welcome to explore our life together and if you feel you want to be part of such a community, please contact me or one of our church members.

In peace,

Rev. Dennis P. Moon
