WE ARE . . .

  • We are people who may have been brought up in the New England Congregational (and UCC) tradition, in other faith traditions, and in no faith tradition.

  • We take the scriptures very seriously as inspired by God, but rarely completely literally. 

  • We are people of different ages, incomes, and lifestyles.

  • We have families of various shapes and sizes - this includes singles, significant others, and those who have lost partners or spouses.

  • Some of us have children, some of us don’t, some of us are children.

  • We respect and honor other faith traditions, and we believe in interfaith partnership and dialogue.

  • We like to find ways to serve God beyond our walls.

  • We are all over the map politically and socially.

  • We do our best to love each other even when we disagree.

  • We believe everyone should be free to wrestle theologically. 

  • We take care of each other. Due to recent events in our town community, we know what it is to have our hearts broken – we continue to shed plenty of tears but we like to laugh a lot too.

  • We like to exchange ideas and opinions.

  • We love our history and tradition but we try not to worship it.

  • We know that God in Christ is calling the church (and each of us) to new ways of being and we are doing our best to figure out what exactly that means.
