Greetings. I am so glad you are reading this article! It means that you have chosen to check us out. It means you are seeking a spiritual home. (or at least something to do on Sunday mornings!) I want you to know that no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. Many churches make that statement, however, here at Gaylord United Church of Christ, we are intentional about making sure it is a true description of who the church is.
You see, we don’t so much care about what you believe. We know you and God, Holy One, Greater Power, Creative Energy of the Universe are working on that. We do care about what you hear at GUCC. What we strive to share is unconditional love and grace for all of us based on an ever expanding understanding of the Good News of biblical scripture. We truly believe the tag line of the United Church of Christ: “God is still speaking!”
We don’t so much care about your preferred sports team, recipe, or favorite Comic-Con personae. Your appearance, physical abilities, sexual orientation, or the pronouns you prefer doesn’t matter. We do care that you receive a non-judgmental radical welcome at GUCC!
We worship with the old and new songs of faith, structured and free flowing worship, ordained leadership and the leadership of the people of GUCC. We celebrate with videos, organ, piano, clavinova, KidsPlay© Hand Bells, and the music of our hearts!
So come, join with others who are asking questions, wanting a group of people (a community) with which to share the journey; your journey, each person’s individual journey, and our journey together.
Let us be the church together!
