The Still Speaking Blog

  • Join us for our Rally Day Block Party on Sunday, September 18, at 11:30 a.m. We will have food, live music, bounce houses, face painting and fun for all ages. This is a free event for the community of Miami Shores and all are welcome!

  • Our hearts are broken today and we join our country in mourning the loss of five Dallas police officers senselessly gunned down in the line of duty. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and friends and with the wounded still fighting for their lives.

  • Sunday morning’s massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando is the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. Forty-nine people died. Forty-nine precious children of God, gunned down in the prime of their lives.

  • We covenant to reach out and support each other in our celebrations and sorrows, in our spiritual journeys and personal ministries, calling forth in one another the gifts of God in each of us.

  • At the 1985 General Synod, the United Church of Christ adopted a resolution encouraging the United Church of Christ congregations to declare themselves open and affirming.

Justice and Witness

Justice and Witness

The Way of Christ calls us to put our faith into action. As a people of faith, we seek to create a world where the voices of those who are oppressed are not silenced by systems of oppression. We are a church that proudly proclaims justice into the wilderness.

Spiritual Formation

Spiritual Formation

In the United Church of Christ, we hold the bible at the core of our faith, taking it very seriously, while sometimes questioning it literally. Our faith is over 2,000 years old, our thinking is not. We are unapologetically Christian, unabashedly progressive.

Member Testimonials

"Miami Shores Community Church is one of the most welcoming places we've ever known."

Gaspar González
Miami Shores Community Church is one of the most welcoming places we've ever known. Members since 2007, Christina and I were married in the church in 2008, and our son, Sebastián, was baptized there in 2010. (He has also attended the church school for all of his six years.) Throughout our time, we have made many friends, some of whom have become like family. MSCC is, first and foremost, a community of wonderful, loving people who greet strangers and friends alike with an open heart and open arms. It is a community that engages the world around it, and gives back. We are blessed to be a part of it.

"Join us one Sunday, I would love to meet you! God is still speaking and MSCC is listening!"

Drace Don Langford
Miami Shores Community Church and the United Church of Christ denominational history are a true God-send! I had honestly been searching 20+ years for a church that welcomes the GLBT community; I never thought one existed, but they do! The heartfelt welcome my husband and I received during our first visit cemented the relationship; 6 years later the love and support we experience from the MSCC church family continues to grow. In fact, we were the first gay couple to marry at MSCC, one of MANY firsts MSCC has experienced during its wonderful and storied life. Join us one Sunday, I would love to meet you! God is still speaking and MSCC is listening!

"The diversity of lifestyle and even belief is a strength to church life as opposed to a challenge."

John Ise
MSCC is a community church where the emphasis is on the word "community." Bringing together a diverse range of residents from the surrounding Miami Shores area, my family has found a spiritually open and socially-conscientious community. The diversity of lifestyle and even belief is a strength to church life as opposed to a challenge. An enriching and elevating experience.

"“Heart” is the word, for it is, as Rev. Meg says, not so much a community of “like-minded” people as “like-hearted” people."

Mark Sell
Since our family joined in 1990, Miami Shores Community Church has been a warm, responsive and vibrant spiritual community, where you can “come as you are” no matter who you are. In fast-changing South Florida, MSCC offered us a spiritual anchor and solace in a turbulent word.  Our last two ministers each served more than 20 years and our new minister has brought a unique energy and enthusiasm. MSCC embraces people of all colors, creeds, persuasions and national origins, and was among the first of South Florida's mainstream churches to open its heart to the LGBTQ community.  “Heart” is the word, for it is, as Rev. Meg says, not so much a community of “like-minded” people as “like-hearted” people. It is a place where you can truly be who you are, where you are.
