Community Congregational Church of Clinton Heights

United Church of Christ No Matter who you are or where you're at on life's journey, you're welcome here!

Worship Time

We worship every Sunday at 10:30am with a time of fellowship after worship.

No matter who you are or where you're at on life's journey, you're welcome here.


This Church recognizes the Holy Bible as the rule of faith and practice. Each member shall have the right to follow the Word of God according to his or her own conscience. Each member shall live in accordance with the teachings of Jesus.  Although our tradition does not require a test of belief, a creed, or a statement of faith, we receive the ancient creeds and confessions of the church as "testimonies of faith" for study and guidance.

Pastor's Message

Welcome to Community Congregational Church of Clinton Heights!

Thank you for your interest in our church!   

The central focus of our church is the worship of God.  We are followers of Jesus and his commandment to love God and neighbor. 

It is our strong belief that Jesus did not turn people away, therefore, neither do we as his followers.

We are affiliated with The United Church of Christ; The slogan of the UCC is “God is Still Speaking.”  While we look to the Bible as the “inspired Word of God,” we do not limit how God may continue speaking to us today.  

The people of our church are people of peace, justice, and love.  We work together to make a difference in our local community through the mission of time, talent, and treasure in support of people in need.  We are also involved in global mission; our parishioners have traveled the world to offer support to God’s people in foreign lands.

Please visit us some Sunday to get a real sense of who we are.  You will find that we value traditional worship, but we integrate technology into our worship.  Also, you will find that we create a relaxed, comfortable environment, but we hold a high reverence for God’s presence in our time of worship.

May God bless you and your family.

In peace,
Rev. Barbara Toll
