ABOUT US

FIRST, WE WANT TO SAY THANKS FOR CHECKING US OUT. WE'RE PRETTY EXCITED ABOUT WHAT GOD IS DOING AT OUR CHURCH AND WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO SHARE THAT WITH YOU.  

Welcome—No matter who are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.


We are an Open and Affirming congregation. We believe in an extravagant welcome, every day. So if you have been in church your whole life, or looking for the right door, you are welcome to be part of this community. We acknowledge diversities in this world and we welcome, support and respect people of every race, ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation , age, gender,
martial status and physical as well as mental ability. We are a community where all are equal and all are loved.


Worship— Our worship is spirit filled and carries the word of God into our lives today. Trying to remain attentive to God’s presence in our lives and yet stay reminded that our spiritual lives are always being transformed. So bring your weary hearts or your burning theological questions for we are here to worship, sing, praise, challenge and fellowship together.


Working together to be the light of the World—Jensen Beach Community Church strives to bring the love of God to all people. Here on campus we house a food pantry, host a number of community meetings and on Thursday's serve a community dinner open to all. We are also the home of JBCC Preschool serving 80+ children and families of the community. Beyond these walls you will find our wonderful Thrift Shop located downtown on Jensen Beach Blvd.


We welcome you to join us for our Sunday services and join in fellowship.


Blessings,
Rev. Michelle R. Carter, Senior Pastor


WHO IS UCC

The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action.  With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world.  The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where "…they may all be one" (John 17:21).


The Church of Firsts

Since 1957, the United Church of Christ has been the church of firsts, weaving God’s message of hope and extravagant welcome with action for justice and peace. Together, we live out our faith in ways that effect change in our communities.  The UCC's many "firsts" mean that we have inherited a tradition of acting upon the demands of our faith.  When we read in Galatians: "There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus"—a demand is made upon us. And so we were the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, the first to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry. We were in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement.  Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country.


A Church of Extravagant Welcome

Today, we continue to change lives throughout the world. We work alongside more than 200 mission partners. We labor ceaselessly to fight injustice, in the United States and abroad. We instill our vision into our youth and young adults, forging leaders who will imagine new dreams. And we sustain and develop church leaders, pastors, and our local churches to live their faith in exciting new ways.  We believe in a God that is still speaking​, a God that is all-loving and inclusive.  We are a church that welcomes and accepts everyone as they are, where your mind is nourished as much as your soul.


We are a church where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary, and where together, we grow a just and peaceful world.
