About Us

Little River United Church of Christ is an inclusive, progressive theological community rooted in the mainline Protestant tradition. We are an Open and Affirming congregation that actively seeks to be multiracial and multicultural. With a membership of over five hundred and a wide range of programs, our church strives to enable each person to be known and to make a difference to the extent he or she feels called. The following statement describes our mission as we have come to understand it:

We gather as Little River United Church of Christ to experience and express the love of God in Jesus Christ. As a community of faith we:

  • • Develop our relationship with God through worship, prayer, education, and fellowship;
  • • Care for and nurture individuals, the community, and the wider world;
  • • Recognize, accept, and celebrate the diversity of all God’s people, and
  • • Build on our church’s history and traditions while adapting to the needs of our time and place.
