You are invited to worship God with friends and neighbors from the Monson, Abbot, Guilford, Willimantic and Blanchard areas. The Monson United Church of Christ is a community church dedicated to serving the needs--spiritual and otherwise--of our area friends and neighbors. It is a place where all people--young and old, and everyone in between--are welcomed and encouraged to become an active part of our church family and to share the mystery of faith.
We are a church made up of people from all walks of life. Some of us are life-long residents, some are more recent transplants and some are here only in the summer; some are retirees while others are actively employed at the mill.

Explore spiritual growth with a group of people who welcome diversity of opinion and who realize perfection is not to be found this side of heaven; yet who earnestly believe that it is our responsibility as followers of Christ to actively discern God's call upon our lives and respond as best we are able for the benefit of the many not the few.
The Monson United Church of Christ exists as a diverse community of faith that has come together to celebrate the "good news" and centrality of the gospel message. As a community of faith we value the richness of worship, as well as respect God's call to extend Christian love, fellowship and nurture.
We like to think of ourselves as a large mutually supportive family dedicated to our church, our community and our mission. The Monson United Church of Christ welcomes anyone who desires to explore their spirituality to join with us on our faith journey.
Share your talents and God given gifts in praise of and for the glory of God. Whatever your gifts, if you are seeking a place to share them, to become involved and to serve God, we hope that you will find this church to be an exciting and rewarding place to do so. Whatever forms of involvement that you might be seeking:
Lay participation in worship
The sharing of musical gifts

Serving on the church board
Active in the Guild
Christmas Caroling, whatever,
there is a place for you.
You are encouraged to come and discover the difference that you can make.
Become a part of a young community church that belongs to a denomination with a long and distinguished background.
