We invite you to be part of this community of faith and to experience firsthand what a welcoming and inclusive congregation feels like. We invite you to Miami Shores United Church of Christ to worship with us, study with us, serve the community with us, and grow spiritually with us. Our vision is to be an inclusive, alive, vibrant and witnessing community that takes on the Way of Christ as our guiding principles of faith.
As a South Florida congregation, you can expect a diverse, culturally rich, and engaging community of faith made up of Miami Shores natives, Miami residents, new transplants, snowbirds, and vacationing guests. We are the village of God, young, old, gay, straight, Queer, Transgendered, or any expression thereof. We are Millennials, Gen Xers, boomers, and the greatest generation. We are economically fortunate and economically struggling Latino/Euro/Anglo/African/Native American and immigrants from around the globe. A church for the seekers, the nones, the religious, agnostics, skeptical and all those who feel the calling of God’s still speaking voice.
Miami Shores UCC is the first Church in the Village of Miami Shores and one of the most Progressive Churches in South Florida. We know that for so many, a church can seem to be a place filled with churchgoers who are stuffy, standoffish, and resentful of change and newcomers. However, at Miami Shores UCC, nothing is farther from the truth. We are always interested in new friends, fresh ideas, and new expressions of faith. We practice the call of extravagant hospitality that we find in the Gospel and we proudly proclaim that no matter who you are, or where you are on your life’s journey, you are always welcome here.
We know that visiting a church for the first time can be a daunting thing. So we invite you to make this website, our 21st-century steeple, your first step into the life of our church. Read about our faith traditions, how we believe, and about the United Church of Christ. Visit and like our Facebook page to see our church in action and to see what’s new in our community. View some of our worship videos to get a feel of what to expect and when you are ready, come and join us for a time of beauty, beautiful music, extravagant hospitality, sound teaching and inspiring worship.
