OUR CHURCH HISTORY
Thank you for visiting our Website! We are excited that you have found your way to our church. We have spent the past year celebrating our 150th year. Pretty amazing! As part of the celebration, members and friends have been speaking about why LCUCC is ‘my church’. The stories are wonderful, heartfelt, and have brought tears to more than one of us J. I have found a couple common threads in the stories: friends and family. We begin as friends, doing the things friends do, listening, caring, sharing and being there to help when needed. Along the way we become family, doing the things families do. You will find friendly caring people here and we hope to see you walk through our beautiful oak doors. Until then may God walk before you to guide you, beside you to befriend you, behind you to encourage you, beneath you to uplift you, and above you to watch over you.
Janis Barratt, Co-moderator
Thank you for visiting our Website! Co-moderator is a new position to me this year. Our Congregation has heard from several over the last 12 months why "This is my church." As we have celebrated our 150th Birthday we have also dreamed about what our church would like to accomplish over the next 2 and 5 years. My favorite response is from 6 year old Sarah who says in 2 years she would like to see the church be exactly like it is today because it is buteful (beautiful). I see 2015 as a year of action for the church. I hope that we can move on several initiatives underway and in their infancy stages.
God Bless, Aimee
The United Church of Christ
The United Church of Christ came into being in 1957 with the union of two Protestant denominations: the Evangelical and Reformed Church (with roots originally in Germany and Switzerland) and the Congregational Christian Churches (with roots in England and America).
Through the years, other groups such as Native Americans, African Christians, Asian Americans, Volga Germans, Armenians, Hungarians, and Hispanic Americans have joined with the four earlier groups. Thus the United Church of Christ celebrates and continues a wide variety of traditions in its common life.
