Who We Are

We are an inclusive people, striving to grow in our understanding of the Sacred, drawing on the deep root of Christian tradition and open to the wisdom of other traditions. We are committed to the renewal of this church, through imaginative worship, unconditional welcome for everyone, and invigorating outreach programs that address human needs.

Union Church in Waban

We are a congregation on the move, coming together for a variety of reasons, each one seeking some blessing. What we find here is one another, people also seeking blessing and discovering one another. We move toward God in all of this.

Through shared experiences and our differences, we come into newness of Spirit, and a different kind of fulfillment than we had known before.

To quicken our spirits we reach out to the world around us, in caring and for justice. And we discover God moving towards us, seeking us in deeds, not creed. For an hour or a lifetime you are invited to share in the worship, welcome, and the work of this community of faith.

 

Our Identity
The Union Church in Waban was founded in 1904 by Waban residents as an interdenominational Protestant Church where all could feel welcome. We continue to remain true to that founding principle. While affiliated with the United Church of Christ (Congregational), our congregation includes people from many faith traditions and many interfaith couples.

Our church family is small enough to be a close knit and caring community of friends. The spirit, talent, energy and compassion of our congregation, however, enables us to respond to needs both near and far as if we were a much larger church.

We pride ourselves on being spiritually inclusive, child cherishing, mission and outreach minded, and fully accessible.

Our Covenant
We, the members of The Union Church in Waban, true to our founding principle of being an inclusive church, covenant together to nourish and to sustain in our common life and practice a fully welcoming and affirming church for all persons. Welcoming all persons who seek to join with us in a commitment to love God and our neighbors, affirming the inclusive love of Jesus, we are open to all, without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, ability or economic circumstance. We invite all to full participation in our worship, membership, leadership and life of this church.
