Denominations / Religious Affiliations

Peoples Church is affiliated with both the United Church of Christ and the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.  Both are non-creedal:  we don't ask you to change your beliefs to belong, nor do we ask you to subscribe to particular religious beliefs.

We do ask you to treat others with respect and consideration, and do your best to sow seeds of love and compassion.  We invite you to explore and to grow spiritually in conversation with others.

This congregation operates democratically:  we elect trustees annually to run the business of the church.  And we observe congregational polity - we hire our own ministers and make decisions together that affect our life as a congregation:  our church is autonomous, while consulting and participating with the larger community of UCC and UU congregations in our area.  

We believe that the big decisions must be made prayerfully, with the active discernment of the whole congregation.
