We embrace differences of color, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation and expression, socio-economic background and any other social delimiter (seen or unseen) that you can imagine.  We recognize, celebrate and are grateful for the diversity within and among all people. We appreciate the unique gifts given to them by God. We seek to promote Jesus’ message of love, hope, joy and peace and honor those messages in other faith traditions. We support and work toward a time when discrimination and oppression of all types vanish from our churches and communities.

Our calling is to be an inclusive family of God in this particular place, and we invite difference and diversity. We believe that bold and faithful living involves seeking and questioning, not dogmatic answers. Bring your doubts – this is the tradition of the United Church of Christ. We hunger for spiritual experience, and we don’t check our brains at the door! We share our progressive faith in a way that serves others. Join us for worship at 10am on Sundays!

We honor tradition but are not tied to a particular or limited Christian experience.  People bring all sorts of histories and we celebrate them all at Island United Church.  All (and we do mean all) are welcome, for we are

An Open & Affirming Congregation

We have a particular affinity for interfaith relations and getting to know our spiritual neighbors!  We are active members of the Peninsula Multifaith Coalition, participating with other faith communities in such activities as the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, a multifaith gathering for prayer in the park, Passover Seders, and Ramadan Iftars!

BE THE CHURCH. Protect the environment. Care for the poor. Forgive often. Reject racism. Fight for the powerless. Share earthly and spiritual resources. Embrace diversity. Love God. Enjoy this life.
