We are UNITED in our DIVERSITY to love and serve
in God's world. If you are looking for a church
where ALL are welcomed and included in our
worship and community if you have suffered
rejection because of who you are if you have
become indifferent with churches who seem
disconnected from the real pressures and issues
of our life and world, then we may be the church
you are looking for! "No matter who you are or
where you are on life's journey, you are welcome
here!"

Bethany United Church of Christ Embracing The
Community
We are a congregation of the UNITED CHURCH OF
CHRIST   Members of the Western North Carolina
Association of the UCC Southern
Conference   Jesus taught that God invites all
people, including societys outcasts, to enjoy
seats at Gods table. Our congregation seeks to
demonstrate that vision by intentionally
welcoming individuals and families of every age,
race, marital status, sexual orientation, means,
ability and spiritual tradition to join us in the
love of God and service to our neighbors. We are
committed to working toward social and economic
justice as we embrace our community.   "Changing
Lives" is more than a slogan or phrase it is the
lifeblood of ministry and mission in the United
Church of Christ. Bethany UCC seeks to serve God
in innovative ways. God continues to form us
through new people among us, offering a
multicultural mosaic that reflects all of
creation.  We celebrate our common ground, while
honoring our differences. OUR FAITH IS OVER 2000
YEARS OLD...OUR THINKING IS NOT!   In our worship
we use language and imagery that reflect the
wonderful diversity of the image of God in
humanity and all creation that transcend the
exclusive language of the churchs past. We urge
you to join us in the journey toward Gods
justice and peace for all people in this
neighborhood, this city, and the world. Come, be
our guest, worship and celebrate with us.

Desert View United Church of Christ "evolving
spiritually, valuing diversity, seeking
justice" 11160 Montwood Drive, El Paso, TX 79936

Desert View United Church of Christ is a
spiritual community that is diverse, welcoming
and growing. Members, participants and visitors
come from different religious traditions,
ethnicities, cultural backgrounds and economic
situations. We are a people of diverse spiritual
gifts, abilities, ages, sexual orientations,
genders and theological perspectives. What draws
us together is the really good news of Jesus the
Christ (God's anointed one). We will likely
express our sense of that good news with rich and
colorful variety. But we'd likely agree that the
gist of Jesus' message is that God is love, we
are loved and called into loving and just
relationships, and God lavishes us with gifts to
hone and share for the common good. We'd also
agree that no matter who you are or where you are
on life's journey, you are welcome here. As a new
member of the congregation recently put it "If
you took Jesus with you out of your last church,
bring him here, you're both welcome." (David
Johnson) Jesus wore sandals to church dress
however you wish. In the United Church of Christ
we do not insist that everyone must think alike
or conform to a particular theological
perspective. You are welcome to participate in
all aspects of any worship service that you would
find meaningful. Come as you are! Worship is at
10 a.m. Sunday mornings and on other special
occasions in the Christian calendar.

We are a traditional church with a progressive
theology. We believe that God is still speaking
and that we have much to learn from many sources
in addition to the canonical scriptures. We
believe that God is reached through many means,
not just through the path of Christ that we
follow. Here on our web site you will find
sermons from July 10th, 2011 to August 28th,
2011, outlining what our beliefs are as
progressive Christians to traditional subjects.
 We are a Progressively Christian Church, and
therefore Open and Affirming. No matter who you
are or where you are on lifes journey, youre
welcome here!

Fellowship and Bible Study at 600p.m
More than a century ago, German-American
Protestants raised a Gothic sanctuary of stone,
stained glass and painstakingly carved woodwork
on West Jefferson Street in the Russell
neighborhood. On holidays, worshippers would
overflow its 500 seats. But by 2006, St. Peter's
Evangelical United Church of Christ was down to
about 15 active members, most of them elderly and
commuting from other neighborhoods. Endowment
funds left by deceased members, which had kept
the church solvent, were running out. The church,
with its rich history, had to decide if it was
willing to accept a radically different future --
or no future at all. St. Peter's decided to
change. Under its first African-American pastor,
it began reaching out to people it had rarely
encountered before -- residents of the Beecher
Terrace public housing complex directly across
West Jefferson Street. In the past three years,
the church has begun offering after-school
activities for children, substance-abuse recovery
programs and Saturday-morning food distributions
accompanied by optional worship services. (Page 2
of 5) Active membership and Sunday attendance now
hover around 40 -- with dozens more worshipping
on Saturdays. "It's turned the corner, in that we
have built trust in the community," said the
church's pastor, the Rev. Jamesetta Ferguson.
"That's been a long process for us."
