Skyland Community Church

Worship Services: Sundays at 10:30am

Sunday Services

Our worship service is relaxed but traditional in style, progressive in theology and welcoming to people of all ages. Children find baskets of art supplies and a time just for them during the service. We gather to worship God, share sacred space with one another, and to understand how scriptures prepare us to join with others in bringing about the realm of God.

We are blessed with a wonderful choir and other musicians, whose artistry touches hearts in ways that words alone cannot.

Open and Affirming

Skyland Community Church is a Christian fellowship whose members and friends form a sharing and caring extended family. As an open and affirming congregation of the United church of Christ, we value each person’s individuality and uniqueness. We welcome all people regardless of race, sex, age, mental or physical ability, marital or financial status or sexual orientation to join us as we work and play together.

We are grateful to live in such a beautiful community and support many activities both right here at home and around the world. We have a food pantry to help our neighbors and welcome families with children in all that we do.

 Women’s Group

Our members come from many backgrounds and theologies, and stay because our primary aim is to live God’s unconditional love in our relationships and in our outreach to others. Our foundational scripture in 1 John 4:16, “God is love; those who abide in love abide in God and God abides in them.”
