Here at University Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, we proclaim a gospel that is progressive, inclusive and inspired by the never-ending love of God. We are an Open and Affirming congregation which means we embrace and affirm the ministry of everyone no matter their race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability/ability, age, or any other factor. We welcomed Pastor John Lund as our new Senior Pastor in May 2023.

Land Acknowledgement

We are proud to use this Land Acknowledgement as part of every worship service:

UCC Missoula acknowledges that we gather on the aboriginal territories of the Salish and Kalispell Peoples. We honor the path that they have always shown us in caring for this place for generations to come.
