Welcome to The Congregational Church of Austin, UCC!
    If you are looking for a small, friendly church where everyone will quickly know your name...where you'll be loved and accepted regardless of your age, class, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation...where you'll be challenged to reflect on your beliefs, acknowledge your doubts, ask your questions and grow in your faith...where God's desire for compassion, healing, reconciliation, and justice is preached...where you're given the opportunity to put your faith into action through effective volunteer and outreach ministries...then we hope to get to know you as a new friend. No matter who you are or where you are in your journey, you are welcome here.
   We are affiliated with the United Church of Christ (UCC), a liberal Ch
ristian denomination that promotes spirituality, peace, justice, education and freedom throughout the world. Here you will find a faith community where members accept and encourage spiritual seeking, diversity and fellowship. Serving our immediate community is a large part of our faith, members participate in the local food pantry sponsored by Micah 6, share the responsibility for a freeze night shelter housed in our basement and share space with LifeWorks community outreach program. Join us for worship every Sunday at 11 am and Adult Sunday School at 10 am. Click for directions.

Sunday October 4

This Sunday, October 4, we’ll be reading and reflecting on Colossians 4: 2-6 and Luke 14: 34-35, and celebrating Holy Communion. After worship, we’ll celebrate the marriage of Colin and Eli Ferguson during Fellowship Hour. Hope you can make it to offer them your love and support.

Micah 6 Sunday Afternoon Drop-in Needs Help
Micah 6, the consortium of 11 University area churches working together to meet the needs of the homeless, need food and servers for its weekly Sunday afternoon drop-in center at University Baptist church. The drop-in needs volunteers who can cook a healthy dish for about 25 people, or come to the drop-in center to help serve those dishes.
More information on the drop-in center can be found at: Micah 6 Youth Drop-in Center - http://m6sydic.weebly.com/ Micah 6 also needs clothes for its Fig Leaf clothing distribution center. Donations can be brought to our Sunday morning worship. If you have any questions or need more information, please see our church’s Micah 6 representative, Whit Bodman.

On November 8 and 15, Rev. Dr. Whit Bodman will lead an after–worship discussion of the book, The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus, by New Testament scholar Amy Jill-Levine. The book is available on Kindle.

The Front Porch Lunch ministry is in need of a few more volunteers to serve lunches.  Lunch is served to area homeless (mostly Lifeworks guests) every 1st, 2nd and 3rd Thursday of the month (although this winter we are trying to serve every Thursday) in our Fellowship Hall.  If you are interested contact John Goff
