Sermons

God, may the words on these pages and the meditations of our hearts as we read and listen be acceptable in your sight.  Amen.

Some weeks our preachers will pose a question for your reflection throughout the week as a follow-up to the sermon.  Watch for this Sermon + logo.  Engage in community with the question at our Facebook page Community United Church of Christ.
