United Church of Christ
 

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 November 23, Pledge Sunday
This Sunday, November 23rd, we’ll be celebrating Pledge/Stewardship Sunday.  We’ll be reading and reflecting on Mark 12: 38-44, the story of the poor widow who offers her two small coins.  The story reminds us that it is not how much we give that defines our generosity, but how much we withhold.  A Pledge Form is attached to this week’s e-news, and it will be available in church during worship this Sunday and for the next several weeks.  Thank you for your commitment to the ministry of our church, and for your generous giving.
 
A Stewardship Message from the Board of Trustees
We're truly blessed. Our church is located in one of the most interesting neighborhoods in one of our nation's most interesting cities. We could substitute any number of adjectives for “interesting,” such as creative, dynamic, or challenging-they all apply. We should be deeply grateful for the incredible opportunity to be the United Church of Christ's presence in the heart of Austin's University district. We gain much by being here. Interesting and challenging opportunities call forth creative and dynamic Christ-like responses from us...Click here for more
