A community connected to each other, to God, and to the world, in order to make heaven a present reality
Where does this community fall on the liberal/conservative spectrum?
We believe choosing a place to worship and a community to be in ministry with is a huge decision and should not be taken lightly. It's important to find one that's a good fit for you. Being challenged is important, but you should also feel comfortable with where you are. Our goal is to be inclusive. And that means everyone is welcome regardless of race, ethnicity, orientation, or political stance. However, if we're going to be honest and upfront, we feel that those who are going to be most comfortable at On Earth are those who might describe themselves as "progressive" or "left of center."
Who is your target audience?
Our hope is to attract those who have been estranged from the church (for whatever reason) or who have never been a part of a Christian community before. Our goal is to offer progressive, forward thinking theology that connects with those who are sick of or bored with what they might call the status quo of churches they have previously experienced.
I have kids. Is that a problem?
Not at all. We love kids. Samantha and her husband Mike have two little ones of their own. We want their kids and yours to have a place here at On Earth. Additional information to come.
Who all is welcome?
We're not sure we can state this enough. On Earth welcomes everyone. We don't care who you are, what your background, age, race, gender, orientation, or religion is, or how church experienced (or inexperienced) you are. We want you to know you are welcome. It is Samantha's intention for On Earth to become a fully recognized United Church of Christ congreagation that will have an "Open and Affirming" status toward the LBGTQ community.
Are you affiliated with a denomination?
Yes! On Earth is a new (progressive) faith community in the United Church of Christ.
What should I wear?
Something. Anything. We don't care. Some folks feel comfortable wearing jeans and tee shirts, and others want to spruce themselves up a little by wearing a tie or a dress. It's up to you.
What's your worship service like?
