Membership

You are the light of the world. May your light and the church’s light shine and give glory to God as we minister together in Christ’s name bringing love, peace and harmony.

You are welcome to come and explore your faith in community with others. You will find a diversity of beliefs at Federated Church and you will have the opportunity to explore your beliefs more deeply. We are a Christ-centered UCC church and in the spirit of Jesus, we welcome everyone into fellowship.

We welcome all who want to join us as followers of Jesus Christ. Many of our members come from different denominations, bringing different life experiences and faith journeys to our church. We are a very active congregation with many ways to be involved - from service and mission projects to Bible studies, from environmental justice to music groups, from potluck suppers to labyrinth walks.

Our Membership Committee hosts membership information classes each year. Folks who are interested in joining the church are welcome to attend, bringing any questions you might have with you. Those who decide to join the church may do so.

As a Church community we are committed to:
~ Offering a meaningful worship service weekly on Sunday at 10:00 am
~ A vibrant Christian Education program for adults and children
~ Outreach to the greater community through mission and service projects.

Contact our church office or minister with any and all questions. Also check out our upcoming events and our newsletter.

A segment of our membership that we are particularly proud of is an amazing collection of former clergy, some retired, some still active, all a blessing to our church life. Here most of them are in a wonderful photo:
