Welcome to the web site of Casas Adobes Congregational Church, an open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ in northwest Tucson. We are so happy that you have made your way to our website.
We hope that as you explore our messages and programs, you will want to come and experience us live and in person! Casas Adobes UCC is a vibrant community of faith that loves music, good conversation and discussion, creative programming for children and youth, and a faith that sustains and challenges us to look beyond ourselves to help build God's vision here on earth. It is our hope that we can be a place for you as you grow in your spiritual journey. We hope that you come to learn from us as we look forward to learning from you.
This is a loving community that has something of the traditional - in look and feel and style - yet we want you to know that it is very much a part of the emerging world in its outlook. We keep asking the question, who can we serve and how can we do it with a positive outcome?
We are an intentionally open and affirming congregation. We believe in being inclusive and support a diverse community (regardless of age, educational or economic background, physical or mental ability, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation, political affiliation, ethnicity, or race).
Listening for the voice of our still-speaking God, the MINISTRY OF MISSIONS AND OUTREACH (MMO) encompasses the wide variety of mission activities that are supported by Casas Adobes Congregational UCC. MMO also carries out a range of community outreach activities, sponsors a variety of public programs, provides publicity for major church events and activities, and makes space available to numerous community organizations. Our charge includes commitment to three major areas of church activities: service to our community, outreach to our community, and providing information to our community.
In our worship and in our philosophy we do honor the words of Congregationalist minister John Robinson, "There is yet more light and truth to break forth from the word of God." In that regard we take the Bible seriously, not literally, and our theology is on the progressive end of the spectrum. Please come and join us on our journey as we all strive to live God's love more fully in our lives.
We gather together in solemnity and joy; we enjoy our church and welcome you. Our members learn from and about each other, share thoughts, events, and projects, and build and strengthen friendships. We take time between Sunday services to catch up with one another, learning about and sharing with members and friends, old and new. There’s always a coffee mug, a handshake, and a smile for you!
