Pastor’s Message

We welcome you to the “e-home” of First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, San Bernardino.  We hope that, on the pages of this website, you will be able to learn a little about who we are, what we believe, and the ministries we support.

We at San Bernardino UCC are an Open & Affirming congregation.  That means we welcome all people – all ages, races, genders, and sexual orientations, all kinds of families – and we invite everyone to participate in our life and mission.

San Bernardino UCC is a church that understands faith is about our heart, our mind, and our soul.  We seek out the best in current biblical research and theology, we are progressive in our theology, and we are confident that “there is yet more light and truth to break forth from God’s holy Word,” as our Congregational ancestor John Robinson put it.

San Bernardino UCC is a church in mission. We participate, through our national and international partners, in mission in over 200 countries around the world.  And, we support many local outreach programs in our community, including food and toiletries donations and providing meals for people with HIV/AIDS who are living in transitional housing at CCLM.  We sponsor one of San Bernardino’s Community-Based After School Homework Centers, and we created and operate the Las Familias preschool (a part-time, parent-participation program for 2-5 year olds).

San Bernardino UCC is a church in covenant.  We are part of the United Church of Christ, a merger of four historic denominations.  We believe that Christ calls us to be global citizens, expressing God’s love through working for justice and peace.

This is a place of laughter and hope, of passion and commitment.  We are a family of faith that loves and cares for one another and for our community and world.  No matter who you are, no matter where you are on your journey, you are welcome here.  We look forward to celebrating together with you in worship, Sundays at 10 a.m.

We are in a pastoral transition at this time, and you are welcome to email your questions to office (at) sbucc (dot) org
