Worship in Community of Hope
Sundays at 10:15 am
May 29, 2022
Hill of Crosses is a site of pilgrimage in northern Lithuania. The precise origin of the practice of leaving crosses on the hill is uncertain, but it is believed that the first crosses were placed on the former hill fort after the 1831 Uprising.
Rev. Bill Rettig hopes that this picture and these words will remind us of the unconscionable war in Ukraine and how much thoughtful Christians need to pray for peace. Click here to get an early understanding of Rev. Rettig's sermon.

Community of Hope, UCCOur Roots
In 1957, four denominations rooted in the Protestant Reformation joined together to form the United Church of Christ. Its member churches live in a loving covenant with one another and with God as revealed in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit. This covenant preserves the autonomy of the local congregation. The unity that we seek requires neither an uncritical acceptance of any point of view nor a rigid formulation of doctrine. We believe in responsible freedom—we embrace individual expressions of faith, and the individual questioning and seeking of God’s presence in our lives. We believe that we are called to minister to others and seek to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, God with us.
