My communion, the United Church of Christ, has released two new videos about the denomination.
The first video, "Uniquely UCC", offers an invitation to those outside the church to take a look at a church which seeks to offer an extravagant welcome to all.
The second video, "UCC Values", shares our church's understanding of its values and how we seek to live them.
My parish, Ainsworth United Church of Christ, can be seen in both of them. In the first, members of Ainsworth are seen carrying the church's banner at a peace rally (at about 0.55 seconds). In the second, Ainsworth in worship is seen at the beginning (0.05), and church members at the peace rally are seen later (3.06) .
The United Church of Christ seeks to live out the call of Jesus to join him in the ministry of reconciliation of peoples and all creation.
"No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here."
Here are the recent videos:
