With Christ at the Center,  
We at the
 United Church of Ferndale Seek to... 
create, connect and respond in faith LIVING, Sharing, and growing
 in our belief that god is always with us

The United Church of Ferndale was formed by joining two Protestant denominations which required a willingness to
honor differing backgrounds and faith journeys.

Following the wisdom of our predecessors, we are a congregation of diverse ages, racial and ethnic backgrounds, political affiliations, economic and social conditions, Biblical interpretations, mental and physical abilities,
gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations and family structures.

We embrace the greatest commandments to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Striving to follow the teaching and example of Jesus, we cherish and celebrate our diversity as we seek to draw the circle of inclusion wide and offer unconditional love and respect to all who come among us. Accordingly, we welcome individuals and families of every configuration into the full life and ministry of this church believing that
no matter who you are, no matter where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

 Rooted and grounded in God’s love, we declare ourselves an open, affirming and reconciling congregation that seeks to live in accordance with Christ’s principles of love and grace, planting peace and justice in the world.
