Vision

We are a Church where God’s love enlivens us to rise up to be a Christ-inspired joyous community of faith where spirit and compassion meet.

Statement on Racism

Magnolia United Church of Christ recognizes the painful reality of racial violence, inequality and injustice being at a tipping point. We pledge to work toward needed changes in all of our national, regional and local systems and within our own hearts, so this reckoning moment does not pass by as it has so many times in the past. We call for racial equality not only within the law enforcement and the judicial systems, but also healthcare, economics and education. We will listen to and study others’ experiences and views, and especially seek out those that are different from our own, even if those exchanges are uncomfortable. We will explore the complexity of our own privileges, assumptions and biases. We will vote and encourage and assist others to exercise their right to vote. As Maya Angelou said, “History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage need not be lived again.” In this process, we strive to love each other more fully, as God has enabled us to love, rooted in an honest but compassionate relationship with one another.

BE the Church

Thank you to all who participated in CIA Sunday 2020 on February 23rd, where we ran service projects including; local park habitat restoration, blanket making for traumatized children, local animal shelter service, hygiene kit creation for a local food bank, and tidying of a homeless encampment. It was messy, chaotic, oozing in vitality and a whole lot of fun to BE the church that morning.
