Who We Are

We are an interdenominational Protestant church that is affiliated with the United Church of Christ.  We are a fully open and welcoming community where we journey together, striving to deepen our love for each other, the world and God by drawing on the resources of Scripture, Christian tradition, the wisdom of other faith traditions and our own lived experience.

We are an inclusive faith community where all are welcome regardless of who we love, what color our skin is, our economic circumstances or whether we are sure in our belief or surely do not know what to believe. All are welcome and our life together is enriched by all who gather.

Union Church in Waban

We are child cherishing knowing that in our children and young people we see something of the very heart of God.

We are also mission and outreach minded knowing that we life our lives not just for our own well being but for the well being of the world.

It is our prayer that through our inclusive welcome, our child cherishing embrace and our mission minded ways, we may reveal something of God’s love in this time and this place.

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.

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.
