We all seek meaning, sanity, a safe haven in the community, support, and love. The warmth and welcome of this community are real and profound.
Worship vitalizes us for deeper thought, reflection and faithful action in our daily lives and world through service in various forms. We are not clock watchers so a Sunday service is not always confined to “one hour and one hour only so help me god!” Following worship, we might gather for a formal Adult Education program or simply linger over refreshments in laughter and conversation. People care for each other and their sisters and brothers. We believe Love is embodied, that is, present in every human being. To recognize this Love in a relationship is essential to us. Our commitment to our LGBTQ sisters and brothers is deep and abiding. We are connected with an Ukama or partner church in Rimbi, Zimbabwe. We feed teens and donate to local food pantries. We explore what faith is and how to live it.
Deering Community Church is small in numbers and it amazes me how much this group is able to accomplish. Yet we know a larger congregation is necessary for sustainability over time and on all levels. We have the faith of the mustard seed which WILL blossom into a magnificent tree.
It is often remarked these days that Christianity and the church are dying…and perhaps the institutions are. They are most certainly declining. But that does not mean the community of Christ-Love is going away. It is, in fact, being revived and restored, here and around the globe.
church but a covenantal church of promise and relationship. We search. We question. We seek. We stand with others. We welcome an openness to the newness of Spirit and the best of tradition. We welcome the exploration of new forms of guidance from Spirit from good ole gospel foot stomping, the ring of Buddhist brass bowls, Native American chants, Yoga and movement meditation. We wait for unknown, an unfolding promise yet creedal Community Church there is excitement as we carry in the imagination of our hearts a community that thrives and serves, creates new forms for being the Love we are called to be. Our denomination, the United Church of Christ, is not a DeeringWithin engage in active ministries of affirmation, advocacy, and resistance to the darkness that thinks it can overcome the Light.
It is into this that we invite you to enter and join us in action, with feet to the street and contemplation, with heart-bodies in prayer, meditation, reflection, and study.
