Welcome to ORUCC

Our church is open and affirming of all people regardless of age, race, culture, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, and economic status

Welcome to you! We are so glad you are here. We enjoy a warm, casual, justice-focused, spiritually-renewing worship time, active and audible children, and really good coffee. You don’t have to know exactly what you believe to belong; we love good questions more than easy answers. We seek to center ourselves in the source of Love, which we call God. We humbly seek to walk in the path of Jesus.

We are a sanctuary church, which means we are passionate about immigration justice and willing to take a stand in the community. Caring for and loving the earth feel urgent to us, along with the ongoing work of becoming a pro-racial-justice church. Our children and youth programs are vibrant and the youth look forward to traveling on justice-focused mission trips when they are in high school.

Our pastors, Julia, Ken, and Kate love working together and love serving our church.
