The United Church of Christ is a community of faith that seeks to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. The UCC was founded in 1957 as the union of several different Christian traditions. From the beginning of our history, we were a church that affirmed the ideal that Christians did not always have to agree with one another in order to live together in communion. Our motto - "that they may all be one" - is Jesus' prayer for the unity of the church.
The religious heritage of the UCC stems from the great traditions of the Protestant Reformation - Lutheran,Calvinist, and Congregational. These traditions were brought
to America by Protestants fleeing persecution from Europe.
Although the UCC is a union of several Christian traditions, each congregation directs and practices its own form of organization, worship, education and mission. The affairs of the church are managed by the congregation, of which the Pastor is a member. All members have a voice in the governing of the church through participation in the various committees, as they may choose, which meet at monthly church councils and at the annual meeting.
Key Elements of Our Belief
* The Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit * The Authority of the Scriptures
* Jesus Christ is the only head of the church * Christian Unity and Doctrinal Freedom
* Salvation through he death and resurrection of Jesus Christ * Bearing Witness and Serving Others
* Celebration of the Sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism * All are welcome

SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
LUCC is the chosen venue for several active community groups in addition to activities within the congregation. We have an active Women’s Fellowship group, a creative group of women in Craft Group and a very social Book Discussion Group. We also offer monthly scrapbooking Crop and Craft gatherings.
Our church is also home to multiple local Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops; as well as weekly AA meetings. We are the home base and weekly rehearsal site for the award winning Old Colony Highland Bagpipers. We’re also happy to be welcoming the Cranberry Weavers Guild to the church for their monthly meetings, starting in March, 2022.
We play a vital part in community activities. The annual Christmas Fair, put on by the church’s United Women’s Fellowship, is a favorite seasonal event, which attracts people from Lakeville and surrounding towns. We also participate in the Lakeville Arts and Music Festival, Community Yard Sales, as well as clothing and soft goods collection days for Savers.
