Who We Are

Can a church be over 225 years old and still be funky? In the case of Colonial Park United Church of Christ, the answer is yes!

CPUCC is committed to living the gospel mission into the world: to deepen faith, to make disciples, and to build the just and caring Kingdom of God. And we are learning that in an always changing world, we must be willing to adapt!

Like many traditional churches, we have formal worship, we care for one another, we span the generations. Like many progressive churches, we embrace alternative forms of worship, we are diverse, we wrestle with today’s pressing challenges.

Of course, we could tell you that we have several hundred members, that our facility located next to the Friendship Center hosts many community groups, that we are formally and individually committed to mission ministries locally and beyond. We could also mention that we have a dynamic program of faith development, with active programs for every age. But we’d be missing the funky heart of what makes us special. We are a people on the Way of Christ, dreaming and playing and struggling, living into God’s dream for us.

No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey you are welcome here!
