Fall Worship Hours Resume!
East Church’s Summer Worship hours end and “regular” worship hours begin on Sunday, September 13. Our worship service begins at 10:00 AM.
We begin our new program season every year with a special Welcome Back Sunday. We hope you can be with us for this joyous service.
Welcome to the East Church Community…
No matter where you are on your journey and no matter what your faith background is or has been, East Church extends a warm welcome, inviting all of God’s children to share in our common life.
If you are new to the area, or looking for a church home…
If you are seeking a safe and caring environment for your children, a creative Christian Education program, or a place to nurture your own spiritual life…
You are most welcome to join us on Sunday morning for worship!
East Congregational Church, UCC is an Open and Affirming Congregation in the United Church of Christ. We are a vibrant community of faith that strives to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. East Church welcomes the spiritual pilgrim and our congregation includes people from a variety of backgrounds and faith traditions. From this diversity we believe we gain a greater understanding of the way God is present in our lives. Together we walk this journey of faith, listening for the voice of our Still Speaking God. As followers of Jesus Christ, we believe that we can make a difference in the lives of people and in our world through the transforming power of the Gospel. Through engaging worship and study, we continue to grow in the Spirit and live our faith, building and serving community.
East Church adopted as its 2014-2015 theme the vision expressed above:
“Boldly Seeking and Bravely Doing God’s New Thing.”
