Whoever you are, wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!

Welcome to Belleville Church,

We say, with the United Church of Christ, "whoever you are, wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!" We believe in a God of extravagant love and inclusive grace, that welcomes all as we do our best to live into the Spirit of Jesus Christ. We are progressive in our thinking and theology. With many intergenerational activities, we are like a family; one of our elders noted that no one is anonymous here! All receive community support and prayer, and have opportunities to share gifts and talents.

Hope to see you soon,
Ross Varney, pastor

Our Mission:

Centered in the inclusive love of Jesus Christ, we seek to be a welcoming, affirming, and healing congregation. Led by the Holy Spirit, we are inspired to grow and be renewed through our worship, fellowship, scripture study, and the sharing of our gifts. Strengthened by God's love and guidance, we strive to serve with compassion those in need, both near and far. We are an Open and Affirming Church.

Our mission statement is our "ideal" ministry. In actuality, we are an eclectic group of seekers and servants who have learned to be compassionate and encouraging of one another over time. Our ministries are growing and varied; we are open to continual transformation and new creation, as led by the Holy Spirit. Please join us. We think that you will find the Belleville Church community to be a place where you can receive supportive love and share your gifts and talents.
