United Church of Christ
Long name, short meaning:
We welcome everyone. Seriously.
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. We believe in extravagant welcome. This is why we insist that God’s communion table is open, not closed, and God’s gift and claim in baptism are irrevocable. We advocate justice for all. We work with — not against — people of other faiths. Why? Because God is still speaking.
We are Open and Affirming
With an understanding that we are all uniquely created in the image of God, we welcome and affirm into our community people of any age, race, culture, ethnicity, background, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and ability.
We are a member of the United Church of Christ that takes the UCC vision & mission seriously.
Vision: United in Christ's love, a just world for all.
Mission statement: United in Spirit and inspired by God's grace,
we welcome all, love all, and seek justice for all.
At LCCC, we encourage everyone to ask the hard questions. We believe this is vital for a person to grow spiritually. That is why we have a Sunday 9am adult class which focuses on various topics, Sunday morning classes for children and teens, monthly Progressive Pints meetings at a local brewery, and various special events.

Serving others in the church, community, and further away helps us to better connect with one another and God. It is through service that we follow Jesus' example of welcoming those without a home, feeding those without food, and clothing those without clothes. Through service we have built relationships with PIN Ministries, JCOC, Elon Homes & Schools for Children (Charlotte), VBFest summer housing program, orphanages in Haiti, and local families that come to our food pantry.
