Umstead Park United Church of Christ is a place where we are important
and it is a place that is important to us.
This is where we learn more about God:
that God loves us and cares for us;
and also the place where we learn what God wants us to do:
love each other and take care of other people.
Every single person is important to God.
We also believe God loves all of nature and we should too.
This means keeping the environment clean and not polluting,
and also that animals and trees and mountains are all other ways we can learn more about God.
We believe that Church is a place that should be fun, because fun is good.
And finally, we believe that questions are good, and that church is a great place to ask them...
And we have lots of questions.
So we will come to Umstead Park United Church of Christ to learn more, and love more, and have fun, and be with our friends, and share with others, and ask questions, and listen for answers.
These are the promises we make.
