…and kids love Land of the Sky UCC! We can’t wait to invite your children into the ministries at Land of the Sky, teach them the stories of the bible, proclaim God’s love for them and support you as a parent or guardian. It takes a village. And this village is noisy and chaotic sometimes. We provide programming and/or childcare at most of our events. We plan with an eye toward inter-generational involvement and experiences.
That’s right. We’re one of those churches that take Jesus seriously about feeding the poor, visiting those in prison, and working to change the systems that perpetuate injustice, whether it be in the church, our homes, our communities or our government. We commit to living justly as individuals and as a community with the hope that God’s realm may be experienced at the most unexpected times and places.
As a community living into the unity for which Jesus prayed, we welcome the beautiful spectrum of God’s people–of every race, nationality, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, age, and ability–into the full life of the church. We desire to love abundantly by covenanting to live lives that are reconciled to God, self, and neighbor.
The Rev. Amanda Hendler-Voss and the Rev. Sara Wilcox serve as co-pastors and the founding pastors of this community. Land of the Sky UCC emphasizes shared leadership by all engaged in the ministries of Land of the Sky UCC. Click here to learn more about our Pastoral Leaders and other Ministry Leaders.
We celebrate the sacraments of Communion and Baptism as the outward and visible sign of God’s invisible grace. In this community that hopes to embody God’s extravagant love, ALL are invited to the Communion Table. Infants, children, youth, and adults celebrate God’s “YES!” in the sacrament of Baptism.
Threshold, n. (thrshld, -hld) Want to live justly, love abundantly, and walk humbly in the ways of Jesus with a group of fellow sojourners? Consider crossing the threshold into partnership. Partners commit to support the life and ministries at Land of the Sky.
Marriage is a sacred covenant where two people join their lives together. We hope that God will be the foundation for your union and that the church will be a part of the planning of your blessed day. All couples celebrated.
Live Justly. Love Abundantly. Walk Humbly.
