Claremont United Church of Christ is part of the United Church of Christ, a mainline protestant tradition. We can’t wait to welcome you to one of our worship services! You will find a friendly congregation where you can think for yourself and grow spiritually. We believe in putting our faith into action to care for our community and world.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we unite on our spiritual journeys to discern God’s still-speaking voice, embrace all people without exception, celebrate God’s presence in worship, and pursue Christ’s vision of peace, love, grace, and justice.
In response to God’s creating, redeeming and sustaining love, we unite for the worship of God and the service of all. We seek to know the will of God and to walk in God’s ways made known in Jesus Christ; to love one another; to proclaim the Gospel to all the world; to work and pray for peace and justice; and to live in harmony with all creation. We trust the presence of the Holy Spirit in trial and rejoicing and the promise of eternal life both now and for evermore. Amen.
Why might CUCC be a good fit for me?
Are you seeking a religious life in which both your heart and your mind are actively engaged? The progressive theology at Claremont UCC honors the authority of the individual conscience, validates the findings of science, supports an ethical outlook, and respects the integrity of other faith traditions. Progressive theology dares to ask hard questions, avoids easy certainties and knows that God is always more than we can imagine.
What about Scripture?
We take scripture seriously, which means that we do not always take it literally.
Can I take Communion?
YES! Our table is open, because it is not our table, but Christ’s table, and Christ invites everyone.
