Do you long for...
…a church that explores a progressive understanding of the Christian faith?
…a group of people who aim to know and extend care to one another?
… a community where LGBTQ+ persons are welcomed and affirmed?
…intersections of faith with environmental, economic and racial justice?
…a deepening spiritual journey, open to questions and affirmations of faith?


At St. Croix United Church, we engage in experiments and cherish traditions, finding life in both. Faith in a loving God supports our efforts to follow Jesus in loving our neighbors and ourselves. We worship, learn, play, and pursue justice together. We support one another through prayer, conversation, and collaborative efforts to follow the Spirit's leading toward deeper and broader welcome. Trusting that each person’s faith journey is unique, we wonder together about God’s active presence in and through our lives.

We invite you to join us for any upcoming event. You just may find what you’re looking for in our vibrant little congregation!

"St. Croix United Church is an open and affirming Christian community, which is faithfully committed to ministries of compassion, diversity, equity, and social justice. United by the grace, love, and forgiveness we know in Jesus Christ, we honor the sacredness of relationships with our neighbors. We welcome persons of every gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, physical ability, mental health status, and socio-economic condition into the full life and ministry of the church. By embracing our diversity, we learn and grow into a stronger community."
