An Open and Affirming, Earthwise,
Just Peace, Immigrant Welcoming Church
Welcome to Lake Oswego United Church of Christ! Here you will find an inclusive, progressive, loving, intergenerational community that rejoices in the unfolding journey of faith as we seek to worship God, grow in compassion and understanding, and live out God’s love and justice for all persons and our environment.
We welcome people of all age, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion, racial or ethnic identity, immigration status, socioeconomic status, or physical or mental abilities.
Join us on Sunday, December 16 for the third Sunday in Advent. In our scripture from Isaiah, we hear God’s promise of a servant who will bring justice to the world and be a light to the nations. As followers of Jesus, how are we called to live out God’s justice and light in our world today? Special music by the LOUCC Chancel Choir.

Advent at LOUCC: “Justice and Joy”
Advent is the season of watching and waiting, when we both remember the story of Christ’s birth and look ahead to a time when Christ’s love, light, and peace will reign on our earth. It’s a time when we acknowledge that our lives and the world are not yet where we want them to be, but that there is hope and light coming. We look for signs of God’s love breaking into our world that help us move toward a greater vision of justice, peace, and mercy. In this way, we remember that the Christmas story didn’t just happen long ago, but continues to happen each day as we help birth Christ’s peace and love in our lives.
The LOUCC Advent Schedule provides a full list of ways to deepen our faith during Advent.
Here is a printable Advent calendar with suggested prayers and activities to help you connect with God and others during Advent.
