Denomination Affiliation

The United Church of the San Juans is an ecumenical united church that became affiliated with four mainline denominations in April 2005: Lutheran (ELCA), United Methodist, Presbyterian (USA), and United Church of Christ. Each member of the church is officially a member of all four denominations. Our church will receive help from the four denominations in finding pastors to serve the church, in obtaining resources for worship and education, and in meeting state and federal obligations. Donations from the church help to support the worldwide mission efforts of the denominations. We provide a presence for them in our locale, an area with insufficient population to support separate churches for all of them. Through our ecumenical affiliation and other efforts, we seek to promote Christian unity and understanding.

About us

In 2003 a group of Christians in our area met to discuss the possibility of starting a new church to serve the needs of people, love Christ, focus on more traditional worship, and respect and be open to others.

Worshipers from all Faiths are Welcome!
