A Message from our Pastor
The Monroe Congregational Church is blessed with a tradition of energetic members, and it has been in the forefront of worship, education, community service and social change for more than 250 years.
We know that visiting a new church can be a bit overwhelming, particularly for the very first time. There are all those unfamiliar faces, finding your way around a church campus, different rituals and music than you might be used to. Then there are all of those questions: Will I know God's love there? What does the United Church of Christ believe? Will my family be welcomed? How is MCC different? Can I find a warm supportive community of fellow sojourners here? Perhaps most importantly, how will God use me in this new place?
At the Monroe Congregational Church, we attempt to answer these questions together, as a loving community called together by Christ. As his disciples, we strive to nurture each person's unique spiritual journey, to explore freely the challenge and wonder of the faith, and to reach out in compassion to our neighbor's needs. Beneath our similarities, MCC members express and respect a diversity of approaches to belief. Most are seekers, confident in our beliefs but open to new revelations and deeper levels of spirituality.
Our worship focuses on the challenges of life as we seek to know and follow God. Shaped by worship, we seek to share God's grace through education, fellowship, music, and inclusive, embracing outreach ministries to those in physical and spiritual need. The Monroe Congregational Church offers you a chance to learn more about our commitment to God, the community and the world. We invite you to explore our website and learn about the many things going on around here.
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Jennifer Gingras
