Saint Paul's United Church of Christ

Who We Are

"It is our mission to be an emphatically inclusive, progessive community on the path of Christ, seeking justice and peace for all Creation through creative ceremony and celebration, soulful questioning, and acts of compassion and service."

Our mission statement may make us seem like we aren't your grandmother's church! Yet we do have a few grandmothers who worship here. We resist stereotypes and can't easily be put in a box--nor will we try to put you in a box.

We are an Open & Affirming congregation and a proud member of the United Church of Christ. www.ucc.org

Our Services

What are services like?
Our worship services follow the liturgical calendar and are ordered with hymns and songs, scripture readings and sermon, prayers and communion on the first Sunday of the month. Our theology is postmodern and progressive while our worship style is somewhat traditional. Our Pastor generally preaches following the Revised Common Lectionary.

What is the community like?
Friendly! (Really, we are.) We're a small community that is diverse in many aspects such as age, background, ethnicity, sexual orientation, family structure, social class.

What if I'm not a Christian?
All are welcome! You don't have to be a Christian nor will you be pressured into adopting certain beliefs or dogmas. Questioning is o.k. No force-fed answers here!

Leadership View all

Rev. Jamie Kepros

Jamie grew up on a farm in Iowa. She headed East for college and graduated from Wellesley in 1999 with a degree in Religion. Having been raised Catholic, it took Jamie a few years to follow her call to ordained ministry in the United Church of Christ. She received her Master's of Divinity at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, CO in 2009. Jamie is passionate about her committment to the local church as it struggles to find its place in the postmodern age. She loves people--of all sorts!--and is convinced that the spiritual journey is of utmost importance in our lives. Jamie, spouse Rev. Sharon Benton, and their two cats enjoy spending time reading, watching films and contemplating the nature of existence. Sometimes the cats lend their philosophical insights to these two progressive pastors. Jamie's favorite bit of scripture is Matt. 19:26-- "with God all things are possible" She invites you to join with us in exploring the possibilities at St. Paul's UCC
