“That They May All Be One” John 17:21
Come As You Are We Have A Place For You…
JESUS DIDN’T TURN PEOPLE AWAY, even those often rejected by others. We are like a “company of strangers,” made family by the grace of God. God welcomes, claims, and loves all people. God also feeds our hunger, forgives our sins, and frees us from aimless wandering.
This is no idle chatter. The United Church of Christ has been bold in extending an invitation to all. For example, our historic denomination was first to ordain an African-American pastor (1785), a woman (1853), and a gay or lesbian (1972).
We reach out through Worship, Music, Fellowship opportunities for all, Adult Bible Studies, Missions Projects, Community, and Global Outreach.
Our facilities are used as an outreach to our community by sharing our space with community groups such as Meals on Wheels, West Volusia Music Club, and various AA Groups like the Grateful Group, District 19, Sisters In Sobriety and Sobriety First.
We wholeheartedly welcome families and individuals from every walk of life, every age, ethnicity, political view, income, and sexuality.
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!

Jesus Didn't Turn People Away And Neither Do We
That statement summarizes what is great about First Congregational Church of Orange City United Church of Christ. This is a church of warm, friendly people who honestly and sincerely care for people. This is evident in the extravagant welcome and acceptance which so many have found in this congregation and in the wider United Church of Christ. Here you will find acceptance for who you are, as you are, without any conditions. Here you’ll know that God’s love truly is unconditional, extravagant and freely given.
