The Community Church of Sebastopol, UCC
An Open and Affirming Congregation
The Mission of The Community Church is to be a community in which we worship God and share the love of Jesus Christ. We seek to teach the message of Jesus to all ages and to put our faith into action. We cherish, honor, support and serve each other and the world, in all our diversity.
We thank God for the diversity among us. We affirm that every person has worth as a special and unique creation made in God's image. As Christians, we experience God's reconciling love. In response, we seek to embrace justice and to stand with all who suffer discrimination, isolation and alienation. In this spirit, our family of faith is open to all. We welcome and affirm people of every religious background, sexual orientation, family composition, physical and mental ability, ethnicity, age and gender.
We encourage all people to participate fully in every aspect of our church's life and ministry, sharing in worship, fellowship, membership and leadership. We celebrate the variety of talents and perspectives which continue to enrich us as we journey together in this community of faith.
