Who We Are
Our doors are open to all and our welcome is genuine. Our beautiful new location has been dedicated, just as we are dedicated to serving our community.
We are a caring congregation, committed to Christ. We’re inclusive of all-with our minds open, and our hearts as well. Our doors are open to people of every race, age, ability, and orientation.
The United Church of Christ is one of the nation’s most progressive protestant denominations; our church supports a variety of social justice ministries both locally and world-wide.
We are committed. to continuing to provide the Stockton community with a liberal Christian tradition by maintaining a welcoming spirit for all, deliberately connecting to faith
communities different from ours, and honoring the breadth and depth of life experience.
Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month. In keeping with our values, we host an “Open” Communion. This simply means communion it is open to anyone of any faith as well as to those who are questing for faith.
We make a joyful noise with Sunday worship featuring hymns, both traditional and contemporary, choir,
musical guests and frequent congregational musical participation. New Life for us will soon include a
contemporary style worship service. As with all of our programs, you need not be a member to participate.
We feel God has blessed us wonder-fully with this new building but, much more vitally, we believe that the people are the church! Come join us as we strive
to grow in faith and connect to our community. Go online and check us out at www.firstcongregationalstockton.org/
