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 29

This Sunday, November 29, is the First Sunday in the Season of Advent. We will read passages from Isaiah and Luke, light the Advent candle of HOPE, and reflect on what it means to be people of hope in the times in which we live.

After worship this Sunday, John Burlinson will give an orientation to Freeze Night Shelter for everyone who is new to the ministry, and to all experienced freeze night ministers who would like a refresher.

This Sunday, Austinites, including members of the Interfaith Environmental Network, Faith Energy Action Team, and many other faith communities, will be participating in the Global Climate Change March. The march begins with a rally at the Capitol, at 1:00 pm. Participants will call on world leaders to take action on climate change at the Paris Climate Talks in December. If you plan on participating, let Tom V. know at revtomv@swbell.net (he’s going and it would be nice to have a larger CCA-UCC presence).

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
