United Church of Christ

UCC Logo

Orinda Community Church is an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ. UCC is the coming together of many rich and diverse denominational traditions including the Congregational Churches founded in Plymouth in 1620, the Puritans, the Reformed Churches, Christian Churches and Evangelical Churches. UCC has also been very active in supporting new and emerging Congregations, many of which have started with ethnic roots. The UCC motto, That they all may be one (John 17:21), expresses the commonality of our Christian faith, yet recognizes and accepts the differences in the details of our worship.

As a member congregation of the UCC, Orinda Community Church seeks to practice the extravagant and inclusive hospitality embodied in our denominational history as well as our own local mission statement and Open & Affirming principles. We affirm that whoever you are, and wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here. As God has spoken in the past through prophets and apostles, poets and musicians, missionaries and evangelists, visionaries and dreamers, reformers and workers for justice and peace, so God is still speaking today.
