We invite you to learn more about our progressive and inclusive expression of the Christian faith.
We are an Open and Affirming congregation that welcomes and embraces you regardless of your gender, nationality, race, sexual orientation, culture, age, or ability. We invite you to join in the full life and ministry of our church.
We celebrate the diversity God created us to be! Together, we are:
• Young and old
• LGBT and straight
• Multiracial and multicultural
• Snowbirds and year-round Florida residents
• Folks who grew up in the UCC and folks who are new to the UCC
Our open-minded and welcoming environment attracts members from Sarasota, Siesta Key, Bradenton, Osprey, Nokomis, Ellenton, Lakewood Ranch, Venice, The Meadows, Gulf Gate Estates, Southgate, and from many other places in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. We are easily accessible from USF Sarasota-Manatee, the New College of Florida, and the Ringling College of Art and Design.
