David Westcott
Interim Pastor
I am excited and looking forward to serving as your interim minister, and would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. Although I have lived in many places I am a New Englander at heart, I recently relocated to Florida, and am enjoying it very much. I am a graduate of Southern Connecticut State University; where I majored in philosophy and art history, and then went on to receive a Masters of Divinity from Yale, followed by some doctoral studies at Andover Newton Theological School. I was raised in the Episcopal Church, but joined the UCC during my second year of seminary. Having been ordained in 1993 I went on to serve churches in Connecticut, Vermont, and New York. Over the years I have served in a number of ecumenical organizations, and for two years served the UCC in an NGO capacity at the United Nations. (386) 775-2462

“A Place to Share Your Faith Since 1883”

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, Children’s Ministry, 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, Art Classes and various AA Groups like the Grateful Group, District 19, Sisters In Sobriety and Sobriety First.
