United Church of Christ Petaluma


WHO WE ARE

We are a group of dedicated individuals

passionate about serving the Lord.

Welcome to UCC Petaluma!

We are a progressive church on the west side of Petaluma, a community filled with hope and joy as we love, serve and grow together. We’re here every Sunday morning at 9:30 am to worship, learn, and grow in relationship. There’s great childcare and church school for the kids, thought provoking preaching and worship for the adults and warm community for all ages.

OUR BELIEFS

We are united through Christ

We believe in The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.

God is the creator of the universe and giver of all that is good. God is the savior—known boldly and intimately in Jesus and his life, death, and resurrection—who shows us how to live and love. God is the Spirit who enables us to make a difference in our world and in the lives of others. We believe that grace is the love, honesty, and compassion that God gives and shows us in Jesus. It’s how Jesus saves us, heals us, sets us free, and increases our capacity for love. We believe that we need each other. Whether single, married/partnered, divorced or widowed, it’s a lot easier to follow God with friends than it is by ourselves.

OUR CORE VALUES

We are here for you

We build connection as a community

through authentic relationship.

We openly welcome and invite all who join in the worship, fellowship, membership, employment, and leadership of our congregation, to participate fully in the life of the church.  We commit ourselves to respond to the needs of those who have experienced exclusion, prejudice, and descrimination. 

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Come as you are!

When you walk through our doors you may see someone in a suit and tie, but you will also see folks in jeans and t-shirts.   We want to make sure that when you visit you are comfortable - that is what matters most to us.  When you come through our doors, we want you to feel loved and welcomed.  If you ever need anything, please let us know.  If you have a question, please ask someone.  If you have a comment, let someone know or slip us a note.

We love to hear from visitors.
