Who We Are
Welcome to United Church of Paducah, a congregation of the United Church of Christ, where you will find both a rich history and a radical welcome! Our congregation might have been founded in the 19th century, but our way of thinking is far from old-fashioned.
United Church of Paducah is a caring community of believers striving to be a living witness to Jesus’ far-reaching love. We believe that God’s love embraces all persons equally regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or social status. We invite you to come just as you are.
We understand faith to be a matter of mind as well as heart, and that taking the Bible seriously means it cannot always be taken literally. We feel sincere questions are a healthy part of spiritual development, and we will do our best to answer those questions as openly and honestly as possible.
We believe that Christ calls us to be nothing less than global citizens, that the social expression of love is justice, and that spiritual concerns are inseparable from commitment to the natural world.
If you have wished for a more open and embracing community of faith to nurture your spirit and raise your children, but haven’t yet found a like-minded place of belonging, then we invite you to explore the many ways that God is still speaking. No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here!
