Our Advent Worship Series

 

Using Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and more specifically Ebenezer Scrooge and his journey, we will proclaim that living in God’s economy of grace and justice is the antithesis of the life-threatening addiction to money, success, exclusion and looking out for ourselves that seems to characterize so much rhetoric these days. Just as God’s presence was born anew into this world,  we too can be born anew, woken up and redeemed into renewed life, joy, passion, generosity, humility and love.

 

This theme will be present in our music, scripture, liturgy, etc.

 

November 27th: First Sunday of Advent Bah Humbug! Making Change

Today (10/30/2022)at a Special Congregational Meeting, Somers Congregational voted to become an Open & Affirming (ONA) Congregation of the UCC.

ONA means that SCUCC has made a public covenant of welcome into our full life and ministry to persons of all sexual orientations, gender expressions, and gender identities.

Here is our new Covenant: "Believing that all people are created in God‘s image, embracing diversity and affirming dignity and worth for every person, we, the Somers Congregational United Church of Christ, are an Open and Affirming Congregation. We celebrate people of all ages, races, cultures, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, family configurations, and physical, cognitive, or emotional abilities. All persons are invited to fully share and participate in leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities, blessings, and joys of our church family."

At SCUCC, All Are Welcomed and Affirmed as beloved children of God!
