Announces Its Closure
With much sadness but immense gratitude for our years together, members and friends of Columbia United Christian Church have closed the doors to our church home and the congregation will disband at the end of 2022. After 52 years of ministry and service to the community as a founding congregation of the Oakland Mills Interfaith Center and in partnership with the Church of the Brethren, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ, we at CUCC held our final Sunday worship service on November 20, 2022.
After a moving service that paid tribute to the past and helped prepare us for the future, we enjoyed visiting with many current and former CUCCers at our traditional Thanksgiving potluck brunch. During a Time of Celebration, we paid homage to the many wonderful people who have made CUCC a warm and welcoming church community over the years and who have partnered with us in our ministry at OMI.
A recording of the November 20 service can be found on Facebook here,
Although we grieve the loss of CUCC as a congregation, we choose to honor and celebrate our collective efforts to embrace diversity, promote peace and shape a just future for all. And we celebrate our support of each other in that shared mission. As we disperse, we look forward to continuing the work of Jesus in new ways and with new partners. Strengthened by the presence of God's love that we've found in CUCC's faith community, we go forth to continue sowing the seeds of hope through good works.
We will continue to share fellowship through our private Facebook group. Click here to join,
