About Us

Community Congregational United Church of Christ is a warm, open-minded, accepting congregation. Know that you will be welcomed among us no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey. We aim to provide welcoming hearts and helping hands to all who are in need. We are friendly, loving, and community-minded. We share each others’ joys and struggles, supporting and loving members of our own church family, our community, our nation and the world around us.  

We have come together from a merger of First Congregational UCC of Lorain and Congregational UCC of Amherst. On July 1, 2017 the 145 years of the Lorain ministry joined 177 years of ministry in Amherst with the vision to be a vital, growing congregation that ministers in both cities.

If you would like to know more about this congregation, contact us by phone at (440) 988-9148 for more information, or join us for worship on Sundays at 10am.  Children are welcome to attend the worship service or they are welcome to attend our Sunday School program which begins following the Children's Chat (about 10 minutes into the worship service). Childcare is offered for pre-school aged children in our nursery, located just behind the sanctuary.
