Summer is a busy season at Wheat Ridge UCC. We have already completed:

  • Pentecost (at our church, "Red Balloon Day")
  • Trinity Sunday
  • Two tour groups to see the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the Museum of Nature and Science, and
  • Our annual Picnic in the Park
Other events include "Shorts, Hot Dogs, and Ice Cream Sunday" on July 15 and Jazz Communion on the first Sunday in August. Also, we will have a guest in our pulpit, the Rev. Jerry Eslinger, on July 29. During September and October we will enjoy our Fall Kickoff for Sunday School and our "Oktoberfest" BBQ. Dates will be announced soon.

Other activities are on-going. At the church, please consider taking part in out regular weekday activities:
  • Pastor Schmitt leads a meditation group every Wednesday morning at 9:00. Coffee and snacks are enjoyed afterwards.
  • Rev. Melinda Townsend leads a yoga group for an hour every Saturday morning at 8:30 in the Boulevard Room.
  • Our congregation continually collects non-perishable foods for the Jefferson County "Action Center." Put food items in the grocery cart in the Church Foyer. The final Sunday of each month is a "deadline" for that month.

Also, our Deacons and Trustees meet every second Saturday at 9:30 and 10:30, respectively.

WRUCC Sermons
Here's a sample of a few of Claudia's sermons. We will be posting additional sermons as time goes by. For an index of sermons, click here.
Our Pastor, Claudia Schmitt
The United Church of Christ has a somewhat liberal or open-minded reputation. The United Church of Christ was formed in 1957 by a merger of the Congregational Christian and the Evangelical and Reformed ("E & R") denominations.
Wheat Ridge Congregational Church is a relatively small congregation. However, what we may lack in membership size we more than make up for in enthusiasm, generosity, and Christian love.
