Welcome to the United Christian Church of Detroit's website. It is designed to help you to learn more about the wonderful things the Lord is doing in our faith village.
What kind of congregation is the UCC of Detroit? We are a predominantly African American congregation located on the westside of Detroit, Michigan, and are affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We are very intentional about exalting Jesus Christ, serving our community, and celebrating our African American history and culture. But no matter your denominational or cultural background, you are invited to become a part of what God is doing in our community.
WHAT'S NEW AT OUR CHURCH
Our Mentoring Program (The Summer Portion of it) - The Daughters of Imani, and the Young Lions commences on Saturday, July 9th @ 11:00 AM. It is that time of year again to get your young person involved in the summer portion of our mentoring ministry. We will teach young ladies and young men, ages 8-18, about Christ, our culture, and how to be better citizens in our community. Our mentors will instruct, share stories, and provide fun field trip outings. Our mentors and mentees will explore together the importance of: building strong relationships with our peers; moving beyond our insecurities, as we form our identities through Christ; familiarizing ourselves with the foundations of faith; learning more about good health and biblical sexuality; recognizing the dangers of drug use and addiction; learning how to become a better students and job candidates; respecting parents, adults, and one's history, culture and community.
Our theme for 2016 is, United in God - Still Going up to the Next Level. Our focus is on drawing closer to the presence and will of God, through study, excellence in ministry service, and intercessory prayer. In Nehemiah 4:6, the rebuild of the walls of Jerusalem had reached the half way point. Also, in Philippians 3, Paul instructs Christians to stay focused and keep reaching up toward their high calling in Christ Jesus.
Pastor Bryant has published a new book! The American Church in Black and White, is a must read for anyone who wants to know how Sunday Morning became one of the most segregated hours of the week; and what we can do to help realize God's desire for unity. Along with a terrible legacy of racism and slavery, three of our biggest hurdles are 1) Worship Preferences, 2)Differing Views of Ministerial Authority, and 3)the Different Ways, Blacks and Whites Approach the Scriptures. Pastor Bryant chronicles how two churches emerged in America. He takes the reader on a journey from North Africa and Europe to the shores of America. His book is filled with many poignant stories about his experiences of serving in multi-racial contexts, practical spiritual advice, and in depth theological reflection.
