Faith Formation Philosophy
At First UCC, we believe that faith development occurs across the lifespan. We celebrate the innate spirituality of every person. This means that we…
  • Affirm the spiritual gifts found in people of all ages, from our children to our elders
  • Respect diversity in faith, thought, background
  • Explore the “big questions” of life together
  • Ground our faith in the lessons, rituals, stories, and songs of the Christian tradition
  • Frame our learning in the context of the progressive Christian values of love and justice for all creation
  • Believe that everyone is “graced, gifted, and sent”: we all are beloved, we all have strengths, and we are all called to help change the world
