Who We Are

COTTC Vision Statement:

As an ever-widening inclusive Christian community, we are called to transform ourselves and our world to embody God’s radical love, healing, and hope.

COTTC Mission Statement:

Inspired by our history of activism, hospitality and service, we are called to offer connection, time, and space to anyone seeking spiritual nourishment, especially those who have been harmed, rejected or ignored by other institutions. Leveraging our ever-evolving gifts and experiences, we gather to worship using progressive theology, to build caring and authentic friendships, to act in service throughout the community and the world, and to rise up to establish dignity for all creation. We proudly and loudly proclaim: Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

We encourage one another by discerning how we act out our faith in everyday situations, inviting others to participate in our mission, and allowing for questions to arise that do not always have easy answers.

All are welcome to worship, study and participate with us at their own level of comfort, without regard to membership status.

Church of the Three Crosses is an Open and Affirming Congregation (UCC) and a Reconciling Congregation (UMC) and as such, we affirm that all people are made in the image of God, and therefore, with God’s grace, we seek to be a congregation that includes all persons, embracing differences of race, nationality, gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, marital status, mental and physical ability as well as socioeconomic background. 

We welcome all people to share in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities and blessings of our congregation. All members of this faith community will have access to the blessings and rites of the church.  We commit to building a fellowship of faith that offers openness and understanding, justice, healing and wholeness of life for all people.

Meet Our Interim Pastor

“Welcome! We are grateful that your journey has led you to seek us out and learn more about the Church of the Three Crosses. Whether our affiliation with the United Church of Christ and United Methodist Church fits your faith background or not, or you are more curious than certain of your faith identity, you are welcome here.

We are a vibrant, progressive faith community. We trust that the Spirit lives within, without regard to financial status, gender, sexual orientation, color, cultural background, or age. Come and join us for worship or one of our faith-in-action events. Or, please write if you would enjoy conversation about our church. I invite you to bring your whole self, faith, doubts, convictions, and questions to our fellowship.”

~ Rev. Leslie Ritter-Jenkins
