Congregational Church of Excelsior
ith each gathering at the Congregational Church of Excelsior, United Church of Christ, we blend the traditional with the contemporary by exploring the Scriptures and discerning their relevance to our everyday lives. We celebrate the way religion nurtures our relationships with each other. At the church on the hill, "Everybody knows your name"—we're small but mighty! Come and explore how God's Grace complements your life. We worship together on Sunday but we also do all sorts of other things together: garden in the summer, get together for breakfasts and lunches, quilt, sing, celebrate children, support local charities, and more. Join us Sunday mornings for 10 a.m. worship and at other activities throughout the week and year. We'd love to get to know you.
Take a Look at This!
Last fall, the youth of our church had the opportunity to create "milk art" under the direction of Tina Rogney. The outcome was sensational! Each youngster poured milk onto a plate, then added droplets of dish soap. They watched the amazing chemical reaction that occurs when the soap and milk fat are drawn to each other, causing movement that brings the colorings along as well. The focus of the group's activity was that each person took the same three ingredients but came out with dramatically different, but beautiful, results. The group related this to God's plan wherein each of us is created the same, yet we are all unique individuals who are equally beautiful. As the milk art fun continued, pictures were taken of the evolving process. The photos were printed, with each of representing a child participating. Their unique creations became tiles in a glorious cross displayed in the church stairwell leading up to the office. Be sure to check it out!
