Miami Lakes United Church of Christ is a progressive Christian community, serving God and God’s people by sharing the good news of Jesus, embodying Jesus’ loving acceptance and working together for justice and peace in God’s world.
Sunday Service is 10:30 a.m. Child care is provided.
We are a part of the national United Church of Christ denomination, spiritual descendants of:
The Pilgrims and other immigrants who came to North America to escape religious persecution
Those who worked for the abolition of slavery and for racial justice in the Civil Rights movement, and who ordained the first African-American in 1785.
Those who ordained the first woman minister in 1853, and have long worked for women’s rights in society and the church.
Those who ordained the first openly gay man as a minister in 1972, and have worked for the equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons in society, as well as their inclusion in the church.
Our church and the wider United Church of Christ believe that we don’t have to agree on everything to be in community with one another. We don’t have to have all the answers, either – in fact, we value our questions and doubts, trusting that they help us to find a more authentic faith.
“There is more truth and light yet to break forth from God’s holy word.”
John Robinson, 17th century pastor to the Pilgrims
We believe that God is still speaking to us today, and asks us to offer God’s extravagant welcome to all, especially those who have felt like they had no place in the church: the excluded, the spiritually homeless and the questioning.
“Never place a period
where God has placed a comma.”
Gracie Allen, 20th century American comedian
