A haven of healing, hope, and freedom
United church of christ
where everybodybecomes a somebody by loving, learning, and working together
We're Open, with caution
In the wake of the momentous changes facing our nation -- from the threat of COVID-19 to the global awakening about the horror of racism and its impact, we know that if Black Lives are going to truly matter to everyone, we all have to be in this together.
We believe that the most important lesson we learned from The Haven is applicable to the current moment: valuing the worth and wisdom of everyone, especially if the wisd was gained in the school of hard knocks.
Our food pantry and meal programs, like "the Haven" homeless shelter we ran in the spring, are "essential services." So we are offering small-scale, in-person, socially distanced worship services, particularly for the neighbors we are already in regular contact with. (Seating is in alternate rows with 8-12 feet of distance; we require masks, and have a contactless fever thermometer available.)
We take COVID-19 very seriously. If you are interested in joining us for worship and have access to the internet, we encourage you to connect with "Denison UCC Worship" via Zoom, Meeting ID 870 3554 5932, Sunday mornings at 11:00.
We know we can't overturn 500 years of racism and injustice overnight. But we are fighting them every day as we build a community of all races and backgrounds where everyone has a voice and nobody is a nobody because everybody is a somebody.
