Who we are

Here’s the deal, the United Church of Christ, Southbury cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. UCC, Southbury is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that same freedom.

 

Where we come from

The Southbury Congregational Church was founded in 1732. It occupied several sites until the third church was built on the present site in 1844. In 1923 the members voted to federate with the Methodist, and from 1923 until 1957 this church was know as the Federated Church of Southbury. The Federated Church served the spiritual needs of the community until the Methodist Conference requested that the federation be dissolved. In 1957 the Congregational Christian Churches and the Evangelical and Reformed Church joined to form the members of the United Church of Christ, and in 1966 the members of this church voted to join the new denomination. At that time the name of the church became The United Church of Christ, Southbury.

 

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, the United Church of Christ, Southbury is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.
