The 5 Distinctive Identities of the New Ark UCC
Introduction: These statements are an attempt to put into words who we are as Church. Woven through them is the common thread of our life as a community.

Theology:
“No matter who you are or where you are on your life’s journey, you’re welcome here.” – United Church of Christ Welcome Statement

We are a progressive Christian congregation, open and welcoming of all. We strive to live the life that Jesus calls us to live. We have diverse, evolving theological perspectives. We are conventional Christians, questioning skeptics, believers, agnostics and seekers. We welcome questions and a searching spirit. As part of our evolving theological curiosity, we value the education of all ages as a process throughout our lives in which we can reevaluate our faith perspective. We believe that God is still being revealed to us, thus we “never put a period where God has placed a comma.”

Worship:
“We are called to worship God as an enthusiastic community with all people of all ages fully participating in their own way.” – New Ark UCC Mission Statement

We gather as a community of faith to explore our understandings of God. We affirm God’s all-embracing nature by striving to use inclusive language and to be intergenerational in worship. We are creative and informal in our worship but not unstructured.Services normally follow the standard Biblical lectionary, although other appropriate writings may be included. Lay participation and planning for worship with the pastor is important to the congregation.Music is integral to each service, with music and hymns chosen to support and enhance the worship experience. The weekly message, children’s time, the sharing of prayer concerns and celebrations, and the closing benediction circle are essential to the worship experience.

Governance:
Your voice matters. Really.

As followers of Jesus, we seek to do God’s will in all matters. The governing body of this church is the membership assembled in congregational meetings. Our members do the work of the church and make the decisions.We strive to reach consensus; we work hard to make sure that all voices are heard as we determine the direction, mission priorities, and future of our church.

Diversity:
Jesus said, “Love God, love your neighbors, love yourself.” And we do.

We each have our own unique story. No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey; no matter your race, gender, orientation, age, abilities, or beliefs, you are recognized as one of God’s magnificent creations.We welcome you with abundant love and invite you to participate in all aspects of church, community life, and practices.

Social Justice:
We seek to do justice and make peace in the world.

The New Ark’s Mission Statement includes: “to use all our resources for God’s work, seeking justice and peace in the world.” The center of our mission logo is Matthew 22: 36-40 “… You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind…You shall love your neighbor as yourself…”

As a Just Peace, Open and Affirming, and Earthwise congregation, the New Ark has built its reputation as a congregation active in social justice issues. Joining our efforts with other partners, we aim to put our heart, education, money, and time toward the fulfillment of these goals (including but not limited to):

Abolition of poverty, homelessness, and hunger
Assurance of human rights and challenge of systems of exploitation
Elimination of all discrimination due to race, religion, age, ability, gender, sexual orientation, and gender expression
Stewardship and healing of our environment
Reform of the criminal justice system
Prevention of gun violence
Welcome and hospitality for immigrants and refugees
We strive to be aware of other issues that threaten equality and acceptance in our communities, our nation, and our world.

Our particular class was first organized by Rev. Jack Soper to study Living the Question. It was put together for this particular study, but we have gone on to study other books as well from Living the Question. Our age range is from 20s to 70s and that has really added to the study and appreciation for the material.

White Rock has been a model for the varied interest and use of the square footage of the main building and a satellite location in service to the community. I think that the various studues have made us more aware of service and compassion for our neighbors.

Thank you.

Mission:
Faith is a journey! We are all evolving theologically. We seek to create opportunities to grow in faith and inner peace as we journey with God into all our experiences of life.

Vision:
We minister to the hearts, souls, and minds of our community by providing people the opportunity to discuss faith issues in a community of love, encouragement, wonder, and hope.
We value scholarship to inform our faith.
We challenge members to think critically about their understanding of God and their relationship to God.
We provide opportunities to learn and grow while serving and loving our neighbors.
We integrate our faith with the reality of the world as we know it.
We create a vibrant, giving, inspiring, justice-oriented, and Christ-centered community as we respect and listen to other faith journeys.
We believe God continues to work in the world.

Values:
We value Struggle. The journey of life is never ending. Different stages in our lives force us to see the world differently. God is always present in these changes and transitions.
We value Honesty. Faith is not taught; it is caught from others. When we are honest about our lives, struggles, and beliefs, we become open to insight from others.
We value Reasoning but also allow that the mystery of God need not be understandable.
We value Ambiguity, realizing that many things are not clearly understood.
We value Questions because questions open us to new possibilities.
We value Love in all things.

Description:

No Matter Who You Are or Where You are on Life’s Journey…
…You are welcome here!

Jesus didn’t turn people away and neither do we.

Whatever your beliefs, you are welcome here.

At KCUCC, our worship is traditional but our thinking is not. We value diversity of belief and perspective. Our faith community contains people who identify as Christian, those who seek spiritual truth but resist traditional religious labels, agnostics who are drawn to the teachings of Jesus and more. We believe church is about community and dialogue rather than conformity. We believe in loving God with our hearts and also our minds. We believe God is still speaking to each of us and each person has the freedom to experience God in their own way.

All people are welcome here, including LGBTQIA people.

KCUCC is an Open and Affirming (ONA) congregation. We open our doors to everyone whatever their gender, economic class, sexual orientation, nationality, ethnicity or difference in ability.

Because of Christianity’s historic and ongoing oppression of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexual and asexual people (LGBTQIA), we decided over 20 years ago to publicly declare our support for LGBTQIA rights. We are “open” to LGBTQIA people and we “affirm” them as made by God. Today our church is made up of roughly half heterosexual people and half LGBTQIA people.

People who care about peace and justice are welcome here.

KCUCC is a Peace With Justice Congregation. We believe peace and justice are at the heart of Jesus’ teachings. We promote interdependence through economic, political and social justice. We seek to love life in all its diversity. We work for a sustainable earth and try to answer resentment and anger with the equitable distribution of the earth’s resources.

Faith Lutheran Church

Contact Name: Sharon Swanson
Address: 2750 McLeod Road
City: Bellingham
State: WA
Zip Code: 98225
Country: United States
Affiliation: Lutheran (ELCA)
Description:

Faith is a community of all ages numbering about 250. Almost 20 years ago the congregation voted to become Reconciling in Christ, which in the ELCA means that we are open and affirming to LGBTQ persons.

We are a liturgical church with ancient and modern settings which change with the seasons of the church year. We sing a wide range of hymnody from all times and places. We sing the Holden Evening Prayer liturgy by Marty Haugen every Wednesday. We also do 4 evenings each year with dinner, beer/hymns – a Celtic theme in March, Pentecost in June, Reformation/All Saints’ in October and Carols in December – all of which are attended by large groups of parish members of all ages. We have a great ensemble of musicians.

We are a church that values theological education. Vancouver School of Theology Faculty come to to teach a wide range of biblical and theological subjects each fall, and several of our members attend educational events and groups outside the parish.

We are a church which respects and values the participation of children. The youngest are involved in Godly Play and we use the Joyful Path resource for the slightly older ones before moving into confirmation resources. The children participate in the worship in various ways as they are able/comfortable and are not objectified by the practice of children’s sermons.

We are also a gathering place for our neighborhood. A meal program happens twice weekly in the social hall with an average attendance of 150 guests. Much of the produce that is served is grown on-site in our community garden. A local non-profit operates from here which oversees court-ordered supervised family visitations. AA and NA groups meet here. The local middle school uses the facility whenever they need the extra space. Together with community neighbors we hold a “Junk in your Trunk ” sale in the summer and a Fall Fair.

We also use the work of local crafters and artists in our worship space – pottery vessels for communion, batik altar paraments , a hand-painted silk tree of life dossal cloth which is used from Easter Eve through All Saints. A tapestry of a refugee mother and child which hangs in the front of the worship space from Advent through Lent. All items are the work of Bellingham and Whatcom county artists. Icons of the Annunciation, the Nativity, and Easter are by a NW Washington artist.

Art which depicts Biblical themes and stories through the eyes of different cultures are also important here at Faith. Over the years we have built up a rotating collection of open-edition prints by He Qui, John August Swanson, Cody Miller, Brother Mickey McGrath, Kelly Latimore, and others.

Over the years I have found the resources from Living the Questions to be useful in the life of the parish. We have purchased and used a number of your programs. Thank you for your work.

As a congregation that values both the mind and the heart, the mission of Brentwood Christian Church is to offer a welcoming environment for those in the greater Springfield area to engage, experience and extend the all-inclusive love of Jesus Christ as we share in dynamic worship, extravagant hospitality, unwavering respect and compassionate care.

Dynamic Worship:
We believe connecting to the same Spirit expressed in the life of Jesus Christ has the power to enliven and transform us today. As we ground ourselves in this Spirit, we are reminded that the deepest forms of worship lead to transformative acts of justice, mercy and compassion (Micah 6:8).

Extravagant Hospitality:
We believe each human being is created in the image of God and should be treated with the dignity that affords, no matter what one’s background or status might be. We are called to intentionally welcome and embrace those from all walks of life (Genesis 1:27).

Unwavering Respect:
We believe that listening to others and respecting them is a deeply spiritual act. Church is a sacred place where we come together to share our beliefs, doubts, joys and struggles without fear of being rejected by others or by God (John 8:7).

Compassionate Care:
We believe that the church exists for the sake of those it is called to serve. Recalling that we can only love God as much as we love others, we strive to reach out from “our doorsteps to the ends of the earth” (Matthew 25:34-40).

Our members and friends come from many backgrounds and experiences, and we rejoice in our numerous differences, perspectives, and abilities knowing that our love of God and our commitment to Christ’s ministry unite us above all else In June 2006, Central officially joined the list of Open and Affirming churches in our denomination, making us the second Disciples of Christ congregation in Indiana to do so.

Central Christian Church is part of the denomination Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the USA and Canada. As such, we firmly believe that God calls all Christians to shared ministry and lay leadership is essential in our understanding of who we are as God’s people. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper – communion – every Sunday and we insist that the table is open for ALL who want to partake. We practice “believer’s baptism” by immersion but we recognize all forms of baptism. Members are accepted by transfer of membership from another church or by a confession of faith and baptism.

At Central, we strive to be faithful to our Vision in all areas of ministry we undertake, with special emphasis on genuine Christian hospitality, excellence in worship, deep commitment to local and global outreach, and special devotion to children and youth. It has been a part of our long history to undertake certain social justice issues, and in 2016, we formed an “official” Social Justice League led by passionate and competent congregational lay leaders. We invite you to visit us for worship, Sunday school, and/or one of our many special events. Come and see if you’d like to become a part of Central Christian Church, where God calls us to be a welcoming and open faith community where Christian love, action, and discipleship unite!
