Congregational Church of Pinehurst (CCP), United Church of Christ is an open-minded spiritual community characterized by a passion for justice, delight in diversity, a love of music and the genuine care we have for each other. We receive with respect and nurture with intention, the gifts of all who come to us.
Rooted in the Christian faith, we nurture thoughtful conversation about spirituality and struggle with who Jesus challenges us to be. We believe there is a way to be Christian, while also deeply honoring the truth in other religions and embracing the insights of science and new knowledge.
We are an active congregation. The Church Council leads by example, providing a dynamic model of shared responsibility for decisions and action.
