Welcome to the web site of the Wheat Ridge Congregational Church of the United Church of Christ! We are a loving fellowship committed to following the Word of God through the teachings of Jesus Christ. We are a progressive, compassionate, thoughtful, open-and-affirming congregation. We believe that the core of the Christian gospel is the message of God’s love. As Christians, we profess Jesus as the central revelation of God’s love and understand Jesus as a distinctive prophet and savior who came into the world, ushering in a novel, loving, creative, whole-making dynamic that is as relevant and transformative today as it was then.

As a church we hope to provide a place where programs, people, and compassionate living bring relevance, clarity, and direction in the face of life’s most difficult challenges. As a faith community we offer opportunities for spiritual deepening and healing while also living out Christ’s call to respond to the needs of our world.

At WRCC UCC we attempt to offer a worship experience with depth and quality while also being accessible and welcoming for those who have little or no personal experience with church traditions. Some of our members would say that at our church they are “recovering” from earlier experiences with churches that they found to be strict, moralistic, or implausible. At WRCC UCC we care about people, God’s creation, spiritual development, intellectual curiosity, meaningful living, social justice, fellowship, and simply being kind to one another. We don’t try to be perfect but we do seek to be authentic. We aren’t overly idealistic but we do believe that with God’s grace, God’s inspiration, and our loving action, we can and do make a difference in the world.

If you decide to visit us we want you to know that no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.


The Wheat Ridge Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, has a long and proud history of valuing the importance of Christian education for both youth and adults. During the summer months (June – August), there is a Children’s Story early in the church service. Our Children’s Sunday School program will resume in the fall as will the Adult Study Hour (ASH).


ASH meets every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. under the leadership of Constance Wise, PhD.

ASH resumes after Christmas break on January 15 with Bible Study using a book by the Rev. Dr. Renita J. Weems, Just a Sister Away: A Womanist Vision of Women’s Relationships in the Bible. Our class studied Womanist thought last year so we are eager to see how this pastor and noted Bible scholar applies it to women in the Bible. Don’t worry if you missed that discussion; we’ll fill you in. We have enough copies of her book for the class, so just come at 9:00 each Sunday in the Boulevard Room.

Rev. Dr. Renita J. Weems – Writer. Clergy. Independent Scholar. Maker. Memorist. Educator. The first African American woman to earn a doctorate in Old Testament studies; Rev. Dr. Weems has taught at Vanderbilt Divinity School and Spelman College. She is one of the founding Pastors and Chief Servants at the Ray of Hope Community Church located in Nashville, TN.
