South Haven United Church of Christ's Mission Statement

South Haven UCC, a congregation of the United Church of Christ, is alive with the joy of faith in Jesus Christ. We are an inclusive community, celebrating and honoring differences while proclaiming the oneness of all people in Christ. Through worship, study, prayer, fellowship, sacraments, and missions, we seek to live our faith in meaningful ways which address the human and spiritual needs of persons in our congregation, our society, and our world.
 
Our Open and Affirming Statement:
 
Guided by the Still Speaking God, we the people of South Haven United Church of Christ, declare that we are an Open and Affirming Christian Community, gratefully welcoming those of all races, ages, cultures, genders, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, faith backgrounds and other expresssions of human diversity into the full life and ministry of this church.

About our denomination, the United Church of Christ
The UCC was founded in 1957 as the union of several different Christian traditions.  We are proud of our denomination's commitment to breaking barriers which separate people of all kinds from the love of God.  From the beginning of our history, we were a church that affirmed the ideal that Christians do not always have to agree to live together in communion. Our motto—"that they may all be one"—is Jesus' prayer for the unity of the church. The UCC is one of the most diverse Christian churches in the United States. To learn more about the United Church of Christ visit the denmoniation's website online at www.ucc.org.
