Sunday Worship

Join us Sunday, October 20 when we reaffirm our commitment as a Just Peace church. We’ll welcome UCC National Just Peace representative and local pastor Rev. Denise Andersen as our guest preacher, celebrate our work for peace and justice in our world, rededicate our Peace Pole, and learn more about the Just Peace movement across our denomination. We'll also hear special music from the LOUCC choir.

Rev. Denise Andersen is an ordained minister who has been leading Just Peace Churches for 30 years while being a parish pastor in Milwaukie, Oregon and Chicago, Illinois. She is an active retreat and workshop leader covering topics from creating just peace to designing sacred spaces. Rev. Andersen is currently creating a 16-piece multimedia work of art based on the Stations of the Cross with an environmental justice focus. She is on the National UCC Just Peace Executive Committee.
