UCC - The Church of Firsts

Second Church is a proud congregation of the United Church of Christ. The UCC is a church of firsts, weaving God’s message of hope and extravagant welcome with action for justice and peace. UCC was the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, the first to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry. UCC was in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement.  Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country.
