St. Mary’s United Church of Christ is an open and welcoming congregation. We feel that everyone and everything are creations of God and as such all have value. St. Mary’s has been present in the community for over 250 years serving as a place of worship and support. We are part of the Catoction Association of the United Church of Christ, Central Atlantic Conference.
We feel that all people are offered forgiveness of sins and fullness of life through Jesus Christ and that the Bible is the inspired word of God to be used for guidance and direction. We also feel that we are called to respect the rights of others who have different beliefs and practices.
We feel that members of the church have a responsibility to actively participate in the life of the church and in local and worldwide communities. The gospel is relevant in the contemporary world and each generation must appropriate the Gospel as its own.
Faith, hope, and love are core Christian values and we are empowered and sustained though God’s presence as the Holy Spirit. We are called as followers of Jesus Christ to grow and learn on our individual spiritual journeys.
Worship and prayer may take many paths and directions, so no matter who you are and where you are in life’s journey, you are always welcome at St. Mary’s United Church of Christ.
